Problems getting WiFi to two separate rooms

So I've got 2 rooms seperated by a kitchen, both have a phone plug socket (Sorry I don't know the technical term) and I also have a bt home hub 2 and 3. I'd rather not use an ethernet cable due to the need for drilling and cost but I want wi-fi in both rooms so any ideas? (I thought about using a hub as a repeater but wouldn't know how.) Any ideas apreciated thanks.

Easiest way is to use homeplugs - one of which is wireless. Example here.

Thanks for the response but are there any cheaper options?

If you have a phone socket in the kitchen, plug the router in there. You should get some sort of WiFi signal into the two other rooms. If no phone socket, easy to run a phone extension from one of the rooms into the kitchen.

Simple situation?? If the rooms are too far apart then there is no wireless signal so a range extender will not work unless you follow onthelimit1's idea. You are stuck with an ethernet cable through the wall and a WiFi repeater (not really so difficult and the most reliable solution and probably the cheapest) or using a homeplug of some type.
