Hello! I'm new to this forum and have a question. Last week we finally got upgraded to the Xfi Advanced Gateway. It was a nightmare but it's on.
After this upgrade and a plan increase to download speeds up to 1000 Mbps we are seeing more drops of internet on computers/phones and far more buffering on the TV. Honestly, it wasn't this bad with our old system and my family feels as if this was a poor choice. I'm thinking the pods might help but we didn't need them before and we survived OK with few minor glitches.
Any advice for a not too tech savy individual?
Solved! Go to Solution.
For a test, does a computer hardwired directly to the router / gateway device with an ethernet cable have the same problem ?
We are trying to determine whether it is a *WiFi-only* problem or an overall connection quality problem to / with the Comcast coax system.
It seems to be working fine when connected via ethernet. We just seem to maybe be dropping wireless connections? I'm at a loss but streaming TV, a college & high school seniors doing online learning and I'm working from home. With all of that 4 days a week I guess I could see some issues with dropping out but weekends the number of devices on the Wifi is less.
Any other advice?
Some tips for improving WiFi performance;
There are other options. Google for WiFi repeaters / range extenders, WiFi mesh systems / pods.
Good luck !
