garden room glasgow

It’s fantastic to have a garden building as an office, playground, gym, or summer cottage, but it’s nearly worthless in today’s world if you
can’t have a stable and consistent internet connection.

Because garden rooms are typically located a distance away from the main home, the Wi-Fi coverage provided by the present house
router is insufficient. Signal repeaters may be a solution, but their signals are weaker in inclement weather, making them unreliable. As a
result, we advise our clients to install an armoured internet connection in the vast majority of situations.

Ideally, you should connect the internet and power cables at the same time. You will not have to excavate your garden more than once,
making it much more cost-effective. The internet signal will not be disrupted by electricity since the internet cable is protected by metal
armour.

A CAT6 cable is recommended. Although they are somewhat more expensive, they let internet signals flow at the fastest possible speed,
providing you with the same internet experience as you would have at home. Even at a distance of over 60 metres (almost 200 feet), our
clients’ download and upload rates did not suffer.

You’ll have two new internet plugs after the cable is installed: one inside your house and one inside your garden structure.

Now you must connect your house’s internet socket to your home broadband or WiFi signal, and your garden building’s internet socket to
a router.

Before you continue reading, keep in mind that you are not obligated to purchase the items we recommend. We are not compensated for
promoting these items. We simply put them to the test and know they work.

How do you connect your new internet plug to your house’s WiFi or broadband?

So, let’s start with your home, where we have two alternatives depending on whether the internet socket is close to the router or far away.

Option 1: Your new internet connection is located near your home router.

All you need is a network cable if your new internet socket (circled in red) is close to the router. Many routers and other electronic devices
have a spare network cable, so check your ‘technical box’ before you go out and buy one. A network cable can be purchased from any
electrical store. Currys is where we generally get it.

All you have to do now is plug one end of the network cable into the router and the other end into the freshly installed internet socket
(unless all of your router’s output sockets are in use, which is rare these days).

Option 2: The distance between your new internet plug and your home router is too great.

Because the majority of house routers are in front rooms, while garden structures are located in the back, this scenario is much more
typical. Running a big wire throughout the home is inconvenient, and if you want to conceal it, it might be costly.

To handle this problem in a tidy, dependable, and cost-effective manner, we propose placing your new internet socket near an existing
electrical outlet on the back wall of your home.

You’ll now need a WiFi signal repeater, which connects to your current WiFi and boosts the signal. We tested a couple of them, and the
one that appears to work the best right now is the TP-LINK RE45 from Currys. It features an external output connection that allows you to
transfer the signal via cable, which is just what you want.

Plug the repeater into an electrical outlet and connect it to your current WiFi network once you have it. In most cases, you’ll need to follow
a few basic instructions outlined in the handbook that comes with your repeater. Remember to test it to ensure that it functions properly.

After you’ve configured your repeater, use a network cable to connect the output socket on the repeater to your new internet socket.

When you’ve finished this step, you’ll be able to connect your new router to your garden room. Again, the number of routers available is
enormous, and it may be intimidating. We use the Currys TP-LINK TL-WR940N, which is inexpensive, reliable, and ready to use in
seconds.

Setting up a router in your garden structure

All you have to do is put your router into an electrical outlet and connect your internet port to the router’s IN port. This is generally a
distinct colour, such as blue in the case of our router.

Your router light should turn blue after about a minute, and your internet should be accessible. The name of your WiFi network and its
password may be found at the bottom of the router. Simply connect your phone to see whether it functions.

What if my garden room had more than one internet connection?

There’s nothing to be concerned about. Because your lengthy, armoured internet connection is attached to only one socket, the method is
the same. This is where your new router will be connected. All of the other plugs are just an extension of the internet signal into which you
wish to plug your computer, console, or other device. If that’s the case, and you’ve asked for it, you’ll most likely know exactly what to do
with your new network.

What if you wanted us to link everything for you?
For a little extra charge, A Room in the Garden offers our clients the option of connecting to the internet in their new garden room. If
you’re not sure you can do it yourself, talk to the firm that’s building the garden room, and they should be able to assist you.

When it comes to anything in life, if you have never done it before, it may appear complex. But believe us when we say it isn’t. It will most
likely take you approximately 30 minutes to complete the task, and everything will function. All you’ll need is your phone or tablet (which
may be more handy if you need to set up a WiFi repeater) and a little patience.

After that, you should have a highly stable internet connection in your garden building, as well as a strong WiFi signal over the whole
garden.
