      The original Sky wireless booster (not Sky Q) should just work.
      As the BT router will have a different SSID and password to your Sky router you will need to setup the booster to work with your new router but this can easily be done using the wps buttons on both devices.
      Steady illumination (not flashing) of the wireless indicator on the Sky booster indicates correct operation.

      I am thinking of using the sky wireless adaptors with my fire stick using a Ethernet adaptor would that work or should I get them plugin line adaptors that use your sockets with the Ethernet adaptor. The wifi is not great even with a better BB THANKS in advance.

      If running a network cable is not feasible then powerline adaptors would be the next best alternative.
      Assuming your Fire TV stick doesn't have a network socket you will need an Ethernet adaptor.

      If you already have a Sky wireless adaptor (not the mini version which only has a USB port) you could compare it to the Fire stick's builtin Wi-Fi but I wouldn't expect a significant difference in performance.
