      Extend Sky wifi... 2 routers???

      Hi all, I'm new here as I've had no luck whatsoever talking to Sky!
      I would really appreciate any advice on the following...

      I have Sky broadband at home with a standard Sky Sagem wifi router.
      I can pick up wifi in most of my downstairs rooms which isn't perfect but I can get by with that.

      I have an office in my garden where I work and I've had an extension ethernet cable run from the back of the Sagem router down the garden and into a socket in the wall.

      Now... To connect my computer to the internet, I need to plug an ethernet cable into my PC then to the new socket. This all works perfectly... so here's the issue:

      Ideally I need to have wifi in my garden office so I can use a laptop as well as my PC and maybe even my wifi printer. Can I somehow get a wifi signal??? I've no idea how or if I need an additional router or another gadget of some kind.

      Any help would be gratefully received.

      Just a small point before answering the question: Sky is a domestic product.

      What this means is that many features which businesses require are not available (i.e. lots of emails sent during a 24 hour period, compensation for downtime). You may wish to consider setting up a 2nd telephone line with it's own broadband for the office in the long term.

      As to extending your existing LAN to the Shed, there are a couple of threads with documents that you may wish to read first.
