Best wishes to all!
Hoping to get some advice on a wifi problem.
We have 6 adults in our house, with lots of stuff!
In total there are:
3 Apple TVs
2 Smart TVs
1 Xbox One
2 Samsung BluRays
1 Canon Printer
1 Internet Radio
1 Apple iMac
4 Windows PCs
1 iPod Touch
2 Sky On Demand boxes
We have a very good broadband service (most of the time) yielding
The router is a Cisco EPC3925 provided by the ISP and is attached by ethernet
cable to a desktop in a downstairs room at the back of the house, which is built of heavy concrete block.
The service is fine in most parts of the house except for one bedroom upstairs at the front of the house.
The service is either slow or non existent in that room.
I asked my ISP for tech support, but they're useless.
I got a powerline adapter,and it marginally improved things, but not nearly enough.
Unfortunately, both ends of the powerline adapter system are plugged into extension
cables (which I know is not ideal), not the wall plugs, but given the nature of our
furniture arrangement, the wall plugs are not an option.
I asked some friends for advice, thinking I might get a solution, but unfortunately
I'm more confused!
One was certain that a wifi booster would sort things.
Another said I should change the router to a dual band simultaneous.
Yet another said I only needed to set my existing router to 'n'.
I'm wondering if I should do all of these things, some of these things or none of these things.....
or something else!!!
Any advice deeply appreciated.
Kind wishes to all
