|In theory that particular adapter system "ought" to provide a degree of wifi extension;|
and certainly some of the reviews above confirm it?
is the company web-page for the above...
Maplins sell the tp-link range too - both the cat-5 and wifi extender.
Certainly when I browse quick installation guide, available with more detailed downloads at the above tp-link site (suppport) - it seems pretty straightforward?
I have used successfully the Devolo range (cat-5 only) and no experience at all with tp-link - who arrived here not too long ago; Devolo have been around for a long time; have similar extenders too- which I have yet to try out.
I'm guessing here that it might be an issue of which wifi channel you are using; and to which the tp-link may be defaulted? Are they the same - or not? Check what your router broadcasts on and if there is any option to select a given channel on the tp-link kit?
It might be worth a call to tp-link themselves?

At least they offer an 0845 number - not one the more expensive 087 series...; so a call might not be too many pennies? And if you bought from Maplins - perhaps a call to their support people, or a visit to the store may help?
And likely there is a non 0845 number too - i.e. a more standard and cheaper number - depending on where you live?
These chaps give a link to possible alternatives.
