I'm so busy these days, I keep forgetting to come on GottaDeal! Miss my daily visits!!
Okay, so we have a 25+ yr old, 2.5 story house (3rd floor is 1/2 attic, 1/2 finished space) about 3000 sq ft and our WiFi is awful. I've called Comcrap many, many times and all they can say is, cycle the router, have you tried this, etc etc. and it never helps. So, I bought an Almond Wifi Extender awhile back and placed it on the 2nd floor of the house, almost centered, so maybe that would help, esp. upstairs and on the other end of the house. It doesn't help much at all. My oldest son spends much of his time home in his room and he's eating up my data on our mobile plan because he cannot connect to wifi up there.
So...I'm here to ask the experts!
I need help figuring out a better Wifi/Router situation in our home so that we can have great wifi all over the house, at a cost of less than a gazillion dollars. LOL Comcast will come and put in hard line outlets all over the house for quite a hefty fee and charge for extra routers monthly, but I'm cheap and I hate Comcast, so I'm looking for a more affordable and workable solution. I've seen lots of stuff online lately for new and improved wifi solutions (Google's new router, Nighthawk something or other, Eero, etc) but I'm not sure what to look for or what might work best for us. We're being told, again by Comcast, that it's not their problem, it's the construction of our home, what's between the walls/floors/ceilings, etc that may be blocking our wifi signal to different areas of the house. That may well be true, but how do we fix the problem??
So that's my problem/question...anyone have any ideas that I can try? I'm open to buying better routers if they are going to help, but again, I just don't know what to look for in a router for this problem.
TIA for any help/suggestions!
