Wireless and Network setup / Problem Solving
There are all sorts of Wireless extension systems available starting with Wireless mains extenders these use the earth cable to transmit and receive data using a transceiver connected to the router and a Wireless transceiver at or near the receiving device these are dependant on the wiring layout of the premises so because of this they can be unreliable , Examples of these are TP Link TLWA4220KIT .
The next system is Wireless Network Extending this works OK but because the extender has to be placed in the range of the original router it tends to add a room or 2’s width in one direction and can be effected by interference in the same manor as the first router. Examples of these are the TP Link RE200 AC750 .
The most effective for covering a large area is to have a cabled network infer structure with strategically placed access points in or near the required areas. Examples of these are the TP Link TL-WA901ND Wireless N Access Point, or the EAP115 Wireless N Ceiling Mounted Access Point.

Due to the nature of wireless it is always better for us to complete a site survey to see where problems may occur, these may be as simple as RSJ’s or other sorts of wireless interference most of which can be avoided by placing the router in the most appropriate place or alternatively access points may be used to get around the blockage.
