@Isaac+gant wifi signals are attenuated by solid objects and blocked by metal so check that the hub is not blocked by being under or behind something like that, placing it on a shelf often helps. Sky hubs dont have the best wifi but normally should provide usable signal 2 or 3 rooms away unless your home has solid walls so if you live in an older property that could be the issue. This help,page gives more ideas Sky Help - Slow wifi

There is a wide range of devices that can get the connection to areas in your home that free ISP provided router's wifi cant reach. The cost can be considerable but powerline adapters are one idea especially if you want to stream video as that use is very sensitive to signal issues. Those units come in kits and use the properties mains wiring.
