TP-link Extender fixes the xfinity / Arris SBG10 Issues????
Recently bought a Arris Surfboard SBG10. As soon as I installed it, I would have intermittent drops througout the house. My signal strenght in the kitchen would be maybe 2 bars on my laptop. I had ZERO issues with my other wifi router(linksys) other than it was older.
Arris tells me..... after a technician looked at my power.... said i needed to calll xfinity.. because my
'Cable signal levels are outside of the ranges for UPSTREAM'
Yes.. I called xfinity, they say 'its all green and everything is fine'
I have read all the threads about this.
then I thought... hey. Let me try an extender' sd I just installed a simple tp-link AC 750 dual band. put it CLOSE to my arris Wifi router. And
IT WORKS! No low bar in my kitchen. No drops.
Am I wrong or does this tell me it IS THE ARRIS Surboard that is the issue?
