BT's mini Wi-Fi home hotspot 500 Kit may become an indispensable piece of kit

There’s an ever increasing number of devices vying for internet connection; so make sure it’s up to the job, with these Wi-Fi boosting gadgets

LINKSYS WRT1900AC

GADGETS

It has the look of a visiting craft from another dimension, has a fairly hefty price tag and is far from the slender unit some might be looking for, but this router is extremely fast and can send a signal further than any other we’ve seen. Easy to set up for standard procedures, this router also has advanced features, meaning you can also take control of your home network via an accompanying smartphone app. Clever. £219.99

 

TP-LINK RE200 WI-FI RANGE EXTENDER

GADGETS

Almost any home can benefit from one of these devices; an unobtrusive unit that simply plugs into a standard wall socket and helps establish a stronger signal. A handy LED indicator on the front will also guide you to where it is best placed to perform most effectively. £37.99

 

BT MINI WI-FI HOME HOTSPOT 500 KIT

GADGETS This will quickly become an indispensable piece of kit for homes where there’s online gaming, video streaming and music downloading all going on in multiple rooms (so basically, in any home). By plugging one part into the source of your internet and a power socket, the signal is then sent over your power line to other things plugged in to other sockets in other rooms, and bingo, better and wider Wi-Fi. £59.98

 

NETGEAR TREK

GADGETS You can use this compact device to extend the range of your wireless signal when indoors, but when it really comes into its own is when you’re on the road. It allows you to jump on to public hotspots but affords your device the protection of a firewall so you’ll not get any nasty surprises. A powerful flip-out antenna will also make you look like you really mean business. A must for any road warrior. £29.99

 

BELKIN AC1800 DUAL BAND ROUTER

GADGETSWhilst this might not be the most powerful router in our line-up, it certainly packs a very decent punch and, with its sleek and suave looks, is without exception the easiest on the eye. Handy if you need to display your (hard)wares. £146.74
