The old VirginMedia superhubs aren't too clever at wi-fi. I have one with the wi-fi turned off and have wireless using an Apple router.
For static devices which don't move around, I use Powerline adapters, but use the 500 Mb ones. I have 5 on the network so 4 shouldn't be an issue, with one connected to the modem/router and 3 others. They seem a lot more stable than wi-fi for games machines.
I find them easier to set up just by forcing a network name onto them rather than using the buttons to connect.
They should be okay in a modern house, but if a property has 2 completely separate circuits not on the same meter, they may not work. The throughput can depend on a lot things, so you may struggle to get that which is advertised, but they should work for most needs.
