    Hi group, I'd like to have WIFI in my detached garage but am unsure what I need to buy to achieve this. Currently there is no signal at all, I have access to the router by running a Cat5e cable across the bungalows attic. Bought and tried the power line adaptors without any success, can anyone recommend something?
    Regards, Otto. in a damp west Cumbria!

    I would always advise going direct ethernet first, which you've already tried?

    I find tplink powerline plugs reliable.

    Havent used PoE gear in this respect, only for CCTV cameras

    Got my antenna up, have to say that I'm quite impressed with the coverage, simple install.
