However, the frequencies spread out significantly worse in the area and also walls or Ceilings are a Problem. In this case, it may be quite reasonable to rely on 2.4 GHz.

However, How well this works varies from apartment to apartment. Because the quality of the Transmission and power cabling. From the advertised data rates of several Gigabit you should let you hide this you will not reach.

With Powerline adapters from AVM, you can remote expand your apartment in an existing Wi-Fi Mesh the brand Fritz. Alternatively, you can also use, for example, Powerline from devolo. Here you should look around for the brand Magic –in case of devolo the best performance.
