Pods and old houses

I live in a one hundred and sixty year old one and a half story house in the country.  I have a metal roof on the garage, breezeway and house.  I cannot get consistent Wi-Fi connection I. The garage where I run a small home based business that takes credit cards.  I need consistent Wi-Fi connection.  Will pods allow me to get this consistency?  My modum is in an upstairs bedroom closest to the garage.  But I also have solid wood walls with no insulation.  I would like to try pods but maybe I should have extenders?  Can anyone help me out?

Pods should work better then extenders. Powerline ethernet adapters or MoCA adapters may also be an option for you to explore. You can Google both for more info.

Hi there, Driver1228!

 

I wanted to touch base. 

 

Did you decide to go with the pods?

I am seriously considering it.  If they don't give me consistent internet connection, can I return them?

Yes, please keep in mind, in order to get a full refund, you must return the Pods within 30 days. If they need to be changed, they can be, under the hardware warranty after one year. I hope this helps.
