Another vote for TP Link Powerline devices.   They'll give you a couple of wired socket and wifi.

Must dig mine out to improve my connection with the wifi box a couple of rooms away - nearly forgotten I brought them out to France - thanks for the reminder!

 

Used to have them in Sheffield because the Virgin router was in the front room downstairs and youngest sons bedroom was back room upstairs. Worked a treat.

I've just started looking at these- as my modem (VM) is upstairs and I use cable to plug into my laptop- just because it's an office room so ethernet gives faster connection.

 

But my signal downstairs is weaker, e.g. on smart tv or other gadgets.

 

But I'm not a geek so anyone here who can help with how to set up these T P links please kindly do. 

Does the TP link need to be connected in with the modem/ same room?

How far is upstairs from downstairs? 

 

If it's a standard 2 storey house then a better router would be the start. 

 

I'm only using the one given by my provider and have a range of useable signal extending ~35metres in all directions. 

 

Upstairs is no different to down for me.
