Question Summerhouse internet connectivity

I have had a new summerhouse installed in my garden (the log cabin has gone) which will serve as a home office. What do people recommend for extending wifi out to it? It's about 100 ft from my router. I have already got an extender (yet to be tested as waiting for electricity to be sorted out) but have also heard about 'Powerlines'.

What about mesh wifi?

Anyone got any recommendations

the idea of a mesh network is that it fills your house with internet connectivity. f*** it do what you want

Got powerlines in ours (proper summerhouse, not shed) and it works fine. Watched a lot of the last world cup in there no problem. Got powerlines all round the house come to think of it. Great bunch of lads.

Plug one into your router, plug the others wherever.

My house has internet connectivity - the signal may be a bit patchy at the bottom of the garden.
