Re: Extend My WIFI

If you can get your Wi-Fi out of the closet It will help. There’s no access to coax or the ability to get coax to a central point of the house?

I installed the Orbi; it can't be put in a closet.

There are other options. Google for WiFi repeaters / range extenders, WiFi mesh systems / pods.
