WiFi Through Thick Stone Walls

Likes # 0

We have BT broadband with a router in the larder at the back of the house where the telephone cable comes in. Our new laptop gets wifi in the house without any problem, but we have a shop only a few feet from the room where the laptop works, but there is a thick stone gable end with and inglenook between the two. The windows in the larder and the extension face in the same direction. Does anyone know how we can get the wifi to work in the shop?

HomePlugs:

I have been told that you can buy HomePlug Sets that have a Wireless Transmitter built into one of them. This might be a better option for you as it would allow you to use your Lappy wherever you want on the other side of the blocking wall.

wee eddie, that's precisely what I suggested in my first post where I gave Clare a link to the TP-Link ones on the UK Amazon site ;)
