Router Getting in the Way!!! Any Ideas

Ask a Question

Hi my master socket where I plug my WiFi into is in my main room, now we have decided we don’t want it there for couple of reasons we don’t have any other sockets around the house am wondering if there is such a thing as a wireless router than I can connect a small thing in the socket and I can put the router an a different room, something like a wireless mouse

Any idea or links of such a thing would be really appreciated

Thank you!!

Im not aware of anything like you suggest but you can run an phone line extension from the master socket into another room. My router is upstairs and that phone line runs directly from the master. It works fine and i get a strong signal everywhere.

Js26 Yeah but you can hide it under carpets or along the edge/top of skirting board etc etc. Best to locate it near near a power supply. If you go for it then before hiding the cable connect it all up first to make sure you got it working and make sure you put your filters on both the master and new socket. Just some examples https://www.screwfix.com/p/telephone-extension-kit-10m/4911x and https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/wilko-telephone-extension-kit-20m/p/0342523
