Yes, the EE WiFi Booster Pack is a Devolo dLAN 500 powerline extender that works by carrying the signal over your electric mains wiring. As long as the outhouse is on the same mains as the main building it will work for you.

@Gg0824  No no no.   That's a add on to allow more data not extend the range of the Wi-Fi signal for this you're better off buying a Wi-Fi repeater these can be purchased at places like curries PC World.

Hi, 

 

Is your outhouse connected to the main house electrics? 

 

If so then consider using powerline adaptors and either a Ethernet switch in tour outhouse or a wireless pass through

 

I have linked to the netgear equipment as it's what I use and would recommend. 

 

Thanks

Re: Hi I want wireless in outhouse approx 20mts from house will booster pack wor

Thanks for that. I will buy the EE booster pack device to keep compatable with the EE suplied router. Hope it gets me going now. The out house is supplied with a armoured cable from my house, and all leads go to the same circuit board. Being a outhouse the supply is obviously got its own circuit breaker in the outhouse but all the mains wires connect to the same master fuse box in my house. Will let you know how I get on when it arrives. Thanks for information.
