No wifi at all in one room upstairs - advice in how to boost.

Hi, I'm after some help and advice regarding my home wi-fi. We have BT infinity broadband and a Home Hub 4. We can never get wireless signal in the main bedroom upstairs, this is the only room we can't get a signal in. You can't even pick up the router when it searches for wi-fi, finds absolutely nothing.

We were hoping to somehow boost the signal in this bedroom. We have gone around the house with ours phones & the iPad and we can get a signal in every other room upstairs & downstairs. The iPad on the odd occasion does pick up a very weak signal in the main bedroom but it is so slow when using I'm convinced there is no strength to it at all.

What are our options to boost/improve the signal in this one room upstairs? Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

A wireless extender is one solution to your problem. This TP-Link model gets good reviews and is very reasonably priced.

After setting it up with your HomeHub, plug it into an available mains socket upstairs where there is a signal and it'll broadcast a stronger signal that should reach that problem bedroom.

Personally, i prefer to use homeplugs. You have one that plugs in by ethernet to the router. Another, wireless one plugs into any other socket in the house. An example is shown here.
