OK first my thanks to all those that offered information. To the spelling experts please grow up. Meter can be spelt both ways. I am into music & deal with US sites a lot & find myself spelling the American way as a result. Favor for instance, one of many.
When people come onto music sites & mispell, or mistype etc, I just answer their problem & hopefully give them the help they needed, without any sarcasm.
My post explained the problem fully. I do understand sometimes the need to widen the information. I will just say although I am two rooms away I can see the router as a diagonal view, hence "no major walls" between.
Regarding 'cheap'. If £20.00 would fix my problem then great, if it doesen't, it is not cheap, so if the cheapest router to fix my problem was £120-00 then that is cheap.
Finally I bought a 10 meter, or metre, or yard, cable, or lead, & moved the router (or should I say modem router) just 5 things away, & I now have 36 & more??? mega things all around the house.
