    The church I go to has had BT WiFi installed. The church hall is used by many different groups and some of them asked for WiFi.
    BT installed a router roughly in the middle of the building. The walls are typical church so thick and the WiFi signal hardly makes it through them. I need to install two or probably three extra devices that give the same WiFi signal, I can hard wire them and think this is the best way.
    My question is what would I need to buy? I just can't do a google search for "a box thingy that extends WiFi"

    "wifi extender" is exactly what you search for.

    You may be better using extenders or access points that can use a ethernet wire from the router if the signal does not get through the walls.
