Can a spectrum app replace a wi-fi range extender to watch streaming tv?
Please don't throw rocks if this question has been answered or it's really dumb-- I am techologically impaired and have tried to sift through here already, as well as making numerous calls to Spectrum and to Samsung. We just purchased a New Samsung Q50R smart tv after confirming with Spectrum that it would be compatible and we '"shouldn't have any issues." Well, the tv will stay connected for a second or two before notifying us of a poor internet connection. The TV is located one floor straight up from the modem and router and a few feet (through2 walls) from a wi-fi range extender located on the same floor as the tv. Spectrum says we need a wi fi extender-- just one' not two-- but cannot tell me if my current range extender is functioning correctly. My question is how to solve this; can I watch tv streaming through my phone or laptop? Buy an eero system? Something else? At least when we only had 10 channels it was plug and play! I am not looking for technological perfection, just the ability to stream tv (and maybe eventually to watch on demand.) Our immediate goal is to get this up and running for the Olympics Thanks for any advice or suggestions on where else to hunt!
