Xfi Pods - No Devices Connected - Slowed down limited signal in rooms too.

I know that the pods need a few days to set up to connect the devices. But right now i have half of the app on my tv that won't work because the signal is so low. It worked before the pods, it was slow, but better than this. I want to make sure that when these pods connect that will resolve. Or is there something wrong, since they are lowering the signal strength?

The Pods create a "mesh" network. In order for them to work effectively, you need to have the gateway at the center, with each pod branching out in a "star" configuration, so each device on your network will have either a Pod, or the Gateway, closest to it.  If you have a device that's halfway between the gateway a pod, you could cause slowdowns as it will try to connect to both. 

 

You could try moving the pods around to allow for more even coverage.
