      Extending Wifi with Sky Router

      My office is in the basement of my house. In it I have my telephone and Sky (Netgear) router. The basement has its own electricity meter, and so its own electricity supply.

      The remainder of the house (ground floor etc) is serviced by a different meter, and its own electricity supply.

      In the upper parts of the house, the wireless signal is weak.

      Can I do anything to improve the strength of the signal.

      I understand there is a potential problem if I were to use Homeplugs as they need to run on the same electrical system.

      Any suggestions?


      Thanks.

      As Homeplugs are out, about all you can do is drill a hole in the ceiling/floor and pass an ethernet cable through it. Connect this to a wireless router in the upper part of the house to give you better wireless reception. Going through a window frame, up the wall and in through window is another possible route.
