If I live on the 1st floor and the router is on the ground will it ncrease WiFi signal in my laptop?

Asked by: Tomasz
This would be a replacement for the wifi receiver in your laptop so would not increase the signal strength. You would require a wifi range extender as found here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/netgear-ac750-wifi-range-extender-ex6000-a00un

This will have been designed for PC use and may require drivers. As such we cannot guarantee compatibility with other devices, we would advise checking the user manual for the Humax device, as a list of compatible adapters would be provided if the device supports any.
