How do I improve my wireless network?

Morning all,

Simple question? I hope. I would like to improve my wireless reception in my house. Whilst excellent in some areas, it is very poor in others. I currently have O2's router pluged into the phone line.

What do I need? How much sould I pay? Is it simple to set up?

Many thanks in advance

Easiest way is a wireless network extender - have a look here (NB - not necessarily recommending any of those listed, but it gives you an idea of what you need).

You could also try varying the band you're on on your router in case it's clashing with other networks / devices.

you may have seen my post in a similar thread but I too suffer from poor wireless reception upstairs.

I have been advised that "homeplugs" are where its at to solve this.  The one below is apparently a very good one and one I am going to buy.

However there are some other simpler cheaper things to try first
