Poor sky broadband signal in house
I have had Sky Broadband along with a standard Sagem router which they provided for some years now. The signal strength has always been an issue, the radius of the signal is poor and I cant get a signal in many parts of the house.
Spoken with sky and they mention they cant seem to help and cant provide a new router as its not broken. They have changed the channel sometimes and that seems to work for about a day then it returns to normal.
If I purchase this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Billion-BiP...1375158&sr=8-3
Will this help and how do I use it? Do I just connect it up to my sky router and a way we go? Also, would you recommend any other router other than this?
I am a bit of a novice here so not sure it will work or if I have any other options.
Any help would be great.

Re: Poor sky broadband signal in house
The router itself probably wont make too much difference as your likely just situated in an area where all your neighbours also have wireless routers so its difficult to maintain any kind of signal strength.
The best idea is probably to just get yourself a wireless repeater or two and situate them in strategic areas of your propery so that all locations you usually use are covered by adequate signal level.
Generally, most routers can be configured to act as 'repeaters' so its pretty easy to get yourself a couple of ebay specials for £5-£10 each.
