    Hello.
    Forgive me I am a layman and I do not know if the description is enough for you, so I am asking for a large dose of forgiveness. On the floor at the parents' stand is the TP-LINK TD-W8950N router, a stationary computer is connected to it. On the ground floor for Sharp tv I bought a box MXQ PRO 4K to tune the TV a little. Unfortunately, only the browser, facebook works, but in general it often loses connection in wi-fi and there is no option to use e.g. YouTube etc. I conclude that the signal in the place where the TV stands is too weak. I will add that I cannot move the router upstairs to another place, just like a TV on the ground floor. The diagonal distance from the router and box is not large, maybe 10 meters, but a ceiling and two walls. I would like to strengthen the signal and I wonder how to do it at a low cost so that the box fulfills its role and that the cash register on it is not thrown down the drain. I am asking for advice - not in a complicated language ;) , and so you know for the total rookie. I was thinking of buying an amplifier for the TP-LINK TL-WA854RE socket.
    I will add that wifi (Orange- via tel. Landline) is generally miserable and his parents have the highest power on the connection up to 10 mega, although it probably never is there.

    Take measurements and tests here - https://www.elektroda.pl/rtvforum/topic3158772.html

    Repeater is not the best solution for streaming data that you probably want to use when buying such a device. You'd better read about PLC transmitters or think about how to "pull" the cabling here.

    I understand. So measuring when I'm at my parents' and then I throw in what came out. And why the repeater is not the best solution - too weak? I looked at the transmitters and I am starting to like it less and less because I did not plan such costs :( .

    Repeater slows down the link and is very sensitive to interference and must have something to strengthen. We will not leave without measurements.

    I understand, thank you very much for your reply. I was reminded that I have a Tp-LInka usb adapter TL-WN822N, which is dusted somewhere in a box on the shelf. Is it a small system-network card, can you somehow use the system described above? So the next step is measurements.

    I don't know if your MXQ PRO 4K supports USB network cards with an "no" indication of course.

    It's best to let go of the UTP LAN cable from the router under the TV,
    If there is no such option, use PLC adapters.

    On Alegro, enter D-Link DHP-W311AV. I think these 100 + shipping is not a tragedy? Even WiFi will strengthen immediately. I have and recommend it very much.

    You can always pull the RJ-45 cable from the router to the TV - it will only be impractical or pretty. Well, but it can be cheaper. I do not know why people complain about the price of wifi equipment, a few years ago any router cost a fortune and today you can have for about 50-60 PLN or the price of an average dinner for 2 people.


    Well, and instead of focusing on the merits, you will now judge me that I pay attention to the budget - so I pay attention to this is probably not a crime yet ?. I have not written anywhere that 50 or 60 PLN is too much, but the mentioned transmitters are nicely over 100 and it makes me less happy.
    I also wrote that I have no way of pulling the cable from the router to the TV - so why such writing, why it serves?

    I would like more culture for those who want to help.
    3.1.17. Do not send very basic questions that you can find answers in the user manual or publicly available sources. Don't take the attitude that I deserve. Keep the level of questions and discussions. Thank you.

    You can buy a repeater but first you need to make some measurements. Download the wifi analyzer to your phone and take tests in the place of the TV set and where the repeater would stand. And as a repeater I recommend TP-Link TL-WR740N V4 with Gargoyle loaded. The cost is about PLN 20, because I can see that it should be cheap.

    I'm sorry - what did I write? Well, forgive me, but I was offended by these money trips. He does not present the attitude that I deserve - I am looking for help from experts and I also expected help in not having to overburden my budget, not the assessments that I intend to save.
    Thank you for answering the topic, and I think the rest is completely unnecessary and please close the topic because I see that there is no equal treatment here - so it's a waste of nerves for each party. Best regards and thank you. And once again, I don't treat anyone in advance, I'm sorry that I lowered the level of discussion with my lack of knowledge, but if I had it I wouldn't need help.
