Wireless bridges like the above would work.

Thanks for reply as it seemed a little too upmarket ! I had a bit more of a search and found this one... is there any catch as its sooo much cheaper or is it just slower?

That is a very good product, it's likely you'll be able to power it from a USB port on the YouView box too!

The TP link should work for you, the Asus I suggest because I've used it and it gave pretty good wireless coverage

Supporting 5GHz is good for avoiding the 2.4GHz congestion which if you live in a town may be an issue

Just thought i'd add to this for anyone looking to connect STB (Sky for me now)

Managed to find a bargain in Maplins very similar spec to the TP one above but wasn't 100% sure it would work.

Mini Router Edimax

After numerous attempts at the settings I was just about to throw it out of the window in frustration when I noticed a WISP mode switched to this searched for networks , picked mine and entered code. Applied and restarted box . Plugged into sky+ boxes Ethernet and after a few seconds off it went !! smile

And all for £9.99 smile


Cheers smile
