wifi in seperate office with sep electric circuit


[link to this post]
 
I have 2 outbuildings both with their own separate electrical circuit, 1 outbuilding has phone line and BT router, the other outbuilding has a wired ethernet cable from outbuilding 1. A strong ethernet signal can be accessed but I am struggling with wifi. just purchased a Whole Home wifi BT gadget but this doesn't seem to pick up the disc from outbuilding 1. Any suggestions, is there not a gadget that I can plug into the ethernet cable which emits wifi?

A wireless access point e.g. https://amzn.to/2OUV5Te TP Link dual band access point £64

Lots of others available, so depends on budget but best to go for dual band devices.

If there's wired Ethernet between the two buildings why not attach the BT Whole WiFi Disks to that?

I have three in my house in which WiFi does not propagate well between rooms and they're all wired back to a cheap Ethernet switch.
