If I'm reading this right, you do get a signal in bedroom 2 and the hallway (I think it is a hallway on the diagram?) from the current router location, and are trying to get a signal in bedroom 1? It also sounds like you have a long ethernet cable and can physically move the router, at least for experimentation.



Tried that. Tried to move it into bedroom 1 (see yellow circle in diagram), but No difference.



I'd would try temporarily sticking the router either in the hallway or bedroom 2. That should give you a signal in bedroom 1 (unless you have a faraday cage in the walls) but worth confirming. You will need to try somewhere near a powerpoint.



From memory, i only have power point between Master Bedroom & Bedroom 1, Will check again as i moved into this property this week.



If that works, I'd suggest the Google Wifi option from Orcon (or equivalent mesh solution if you're happy to buy - variants do pop up on GZ) with the base unit permanently by the ONT and a slave/child unit in the hallway or bedroom 2. The slave/child unit will sort of act like a wifi repeater, without all the downsides of actual wifi repeaters. 



IF, i choose mesh, then will have to place these child units either in Bedroom 1 because placing the router in Bedroom 2 didnt gave me any benefit.

The wifi signal on the nf18 is absolute carp.


We were thinking we would need to get a mesh system, but a friend had an Asus rt-58u router lying around. With the asus we now have wifi halfway down the street where as before we there was no signal in two of our bedrooms or outside the house
