    BT Vision Powerline Adapters 17th May 17 at 12:21 PM
    With reference to today's MSE post on "Boost Broadband Speed", should the Simpler Networks Mini Passthrough adapters (200Mbps) work for extending my Wi-Fi from a ground floor (BT)router to a first floor pc? They were provided along with a BT Vision + Box originally, I now use Freesat, but hoped these would help boost Wi-Fi to upstairs? I have two adapters.

    wont boost wifi, they are for LAN connections

    connect lan to hub downstairs , connect lan to device upstairs

    you could plug a wireless access point in the upstairs one to get wifi
