    Hi.

    My challenge.
    I want to install a router in garden office, that will take a high number of connections for wifi plugs, guests etc.

    I have an ethernet cable connection from sky broadband in the house.

    What is the best router for job and is it easy to set up?

    Additional question ,
    Is it better to give it a separate name or same as house wifi network ?

    Thanks

    The easiest would probably be to just add an Access Point. It'll allow your existing router to handle all routing etc. between those devices and the Internet. Of course, if you need to completely separate those devices from your existing network the solution is quite different. So, in short, it all depends on what you want/need and how much you're willing to spend.

    Thank you.

    Do i need a router with a 'client'?
    Sorry if this doesn't make sense.

    As for cost, like everything, i want one that works for as cheap as possible. But would rather invest now than buy twice.

    All suggestions welcome

    Thanks again.

    Its not as complicated as it sounds. All you need is a router, you plug in the LAN and use it on multiple devices. The best budget option is a TP Link.

    PS- Do give it a different name, as your home network would be dedicated for your use only and its range would be in that vicinity only

    Where is this garden office? Is it part of your existing home? When you say a high number of wifi plugs, do you mean you're going to have a lot of wireless clients connected? How many is a lot? What are these devices and what type of network traffic will these devices require? You mentioned guests. Who are these guests? Friends? Customers/clients?
