GeneralWifi Question... PinmemberDalek Dave18-Jan-13 14:21 
I meant to ask this earlier, but have only just remembered.

My brother has trouble getting a strong wifi signal from the area of his house furthest away from the wireless router and wants to know how to strengthen the signal.
I suggested he buys bigger antennae for the box (may not work) or splashes out on a powerline adapter (which will).
I have no need for such a device so have no experience using them, but I am sure the intelligentsia can offer a few suggestions as to which one to recommend to him.
Are they simple to use and install? (He will be doing that, I shall be elsewhere) and are they safe should there be a power surge?
I will never again mention that I was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel. Dalek Dave
