Router advice.

Next week I'm finally getting Fibre installed.  Woohoo!
But that throws up a problem.
I have a medium sized house with thick stone walls, and wireless signals struggle to penetrate.
Currently I have got 100% coverage in the house and garden, by using 2 Netgear DGND3300v2 routers, set up in repeater mode.
So the first is the access point, and the second router is the wireless extender.
The 2 routers are connected together by there own wireless signal.  This works fine.
But for Fibre the Netgear I am currently using as an access point can't be used, and will need to be replaced by the PlusNet supplied router.  Or.. I have a HomeHub3 in the cupboard, would that be better?
Anyway, I will need to have a similar set up to get full wireless coverage, as I have now.
The items available to use will be:  The Plusnet supplied router, 1 x Home Hub 3, 2 Netgear DGND 3300v2, and a coil of 30 metre cable if I need to use it.
Both the down stairs router (access point) and upstairs router (repeater) have items connected wired and wireless to them.

What's my best options for setting up?
Thanks in advance.
