Can I Connect Plus net Router/modem with BT Router to boost up WIFI signals

Hi, 

Can anybody help me in combining/connecting plus net modem/router with BT openreach to boost up WIFI signals? 

I recently switched over from Talk Talk, when i install the talk talk for the first time I face weak WIFI signals problem in my bed room up stare, then talk talk put to gather another modem (Openreach BT) with their talk talk modem through Ethernet cable,(200 Mbps power line Ethernet adopter) then the problem resolved. 

I am facing the same problem with plus net now, can i combine/connect the BT Openreach modem along with plus net modem to boos up WIFI signals? 

if yes kindly let me know about procedure how to do it. 

Thanks,

Rashid

Hi there

I believe this should work fine. (Assuming you're using the Plusnet Hub One)

You'd connect the Openreach Modem into your master phone socket as normal then plug the Ethernet cable from the LAN1 port into your powerline adapter.

In your bedroom, using the WAN port of the Hub One you can then plug the router into another powerline adapter.

The signal would effectively transmit from the Openreach Modem through your internal electricity wiring to the router.

I hope this helps but if you have any questions just ask.

This shows how to add another router as an access point. I'm sure you should be able to follow this method to meet your needs.

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy
