I was thinking powerlines that go into a upstairs socket with a range extender but is there any better way.
Its only 50 meg at minute but being upgraded to 100, I stayed there for a few days and even downstairs in the room next to rotuer signal was all over the place i.e unless laptop was at a certain angle got nothing, even with it worked it went between 10-40 meg so was thinking a range extender on each floor of the house
It really depends which Virginmedia superhub you have, if it's the 2.4Ghz only version it's never going to deliver.
If you have the AC one then I would say probably something wrong with your laptop or a faulty router. I get a full 200 (yes 200) Mbps over 5Ghz WiFi with the virginmedia superhub AC. I have a wireless AC capable laptop.
This even stays the same speed in the room above the hub.
I would avoid range extenders, as these by default half the speed you get, so you'll just be cutting the speed more and more.
I would get dual band, wireless AC access points, and hard wire them into the main hub.
Although first check you have 1) Used the 5Ghz band, not the 2.4Ghz band when you connected 2) Have a wireless AC capable laptop
