Has anyone 'successfully' extended the footprint of a spectrum wireless tower (household) in a 3 story 'old' big old house utilizing WIFI Boosters, like: Extend, RangeXTD, WIFI Ultra boost, or Netgear? If so, care to share?

Thank you, Mark

    Good Morning @broussma I am sorry that we did not get any responses from the community.


    While my house is not that large, 2 stories only, I do have a Netgear Wifi Extender. I have found

    it works very well for my purposes. It is old and we found that the interference from the building

    materials was pretty severe. We are not having any issues now. I suspect that they would help in your situation as well.


    If you decide to give extenders a shot we would love to hear back from you with your experience.

    The 'Booster' and 'Extender' manufacturers will (rather aggressively) state the absolute maximum downlink speed their products can support. Spectrum's Gigabit service tier actually clocks out to about 940 Mbps download on Ookla SpeedTest while cable uploads will be in the 30 to 50 Mbps range.
