    Hi all from sunny Spain (honest)

    As newbies to the dark art of obtaining telly abroad we installed the Ap (whatever they are) and sat down, in the van to watch Judy get her cumuppence.
    Except the signal kept buffering (whatever that is)

    I then won a million brownie points by installing the small table between the front seats and sticking a veg box upside down on top followed by, wait for it, the solid steel tray from inside the oven.

    Inside that we put the tablet and guess what, almost perfect reception from then on.

    I reckon the tray helped collect the wifi signals on top of which, at the front of the van, the signal didn't have to struggle so hard to get past the metal box (ie van) we were sitting in.

    Try a vonets repeater you just plug it into a usb port or mains adapter and it amplifies the signal. See www.aliexpress.com
