suitable booster for garden room

Hi all - I have just had a rather frustrating converstion with the Sky team where I was informed that as they only supply wifi to the main house they cannot supply me with a booster for my garden room.

 

So - the garden room will be fitted with an ethernet cable - can anyone advise me on a suitable/compatible booster/router/whatever to use  at the end of the cable to give me wifi in the garden room.

 

Thanks

The terms of the WiFi Guarantee do specifically say

 

Your WiFi Guarantee includes:

 

  • All main rooms in your home like living rooms, bedrooms, kit chens.
  • A garage that is accessed without having to go outside.
  • A converted loft room – it needs to have a fixed staircase, fully boarded and furnished.
  • Conservatory.

What it doesn’t include:

 

  • Any exterior buildings like garages, sheds, annexes, etc.
  • An unconverted loft – one that is not furnished.

 

If you can source your own Sky wireless booster (some have inevitably leaked online) then that's the simplest configuration to have on the end of ethernet from a Sky Hub, although the legitimacy of this is somewhat dubious.

You can purchase a Sky booster elsewhere or any device that has an 'AP' mode
