Have recently moved house taking my old DSL3680 router with me which works fine.  Need to extend signal 20 Mtrs to my Garden Studio,  will the TalkTalk Extender work or the Super Router?

You do not currently have PM's enabled. I will ask TalkTalk to enable this for you.

I will PM you a link for a guide of mine on Wi-Fi interference & initially look at the section called "Are you suffering from interference – prove it first". This section includes full details of Wi-Fi analysers that I recommend for Windows, Windows phone, Android and Apple operating systems. However, I have no way of testing the Apple product. Do not worry about interpreting the results, I will do that for you.

Please post the screenshots that I have requested in my guide (no photos please they can be difficult to read as text can get out of focus when zoomed), from the analyser you are using (also in my attached guide). Please ensure that the analyser window is maximised (if Windows) before taking the screenshots & upload them via the "Insert Photos" button (in a mobile browser it's the picture icon) on the post editor's toolbar as large images. If they are too small, I will not be able to read them & although I can enlarge them, this just puts the text out of focus. If you prefer PM them to me. If you do PM me, then please add a link in there to this thread, so as I can find it easily.

It requires the use of a free WiFi analyser, I can provide full details if required.

That is impossible to answer without knowing the state of any WiFi interference & congestion. I can help you with that.

 

Both the two WiFi hubs & extender are of a much higher specification than your current router, but getting one of these without testing for interference can give you a worse reception and waste your money.
