    Good morning! I edited your title a little so our participants will better understand just by title.


    Can you tell us a bit more about your situation? Where is the router located in the home. How far

    would you estimate you want it to extend? What type of equipment are you using?

    This problem has lots of answers. You could buy a WiFi extender, or a mesh router or add extra hard wired access points around your property. All of these solutions require you to take control of your LAN and spend money for extra equipment. If you are talking about doing it with Spectrum supplied equipment (i.e. their supplied WiFi router) the best you will be able to do is try to find the best position up high to place the device. It kind of depends how much money you want to throw at the problem and your level of expertise.
