Cable / Wifi questions
I bought a new router after building a game room onto my small house to assist with the wifi. I noticed the router (Asus 1700) didn't have a coax cable input like the older FIOS wifi router/modem I have now does (doh!) so managed to figure out to connect the new router to the old one. I set up the new wifi, but didn't disconnect the old wifi, so now i have multiple ones. Even though this router is supposed to be a really good one.. I have noticed the wifi drops during the day frequently, and I have to switch over to the other one. Does having multiple wifi slow them both down somehow? If so, I can go figure out how to go into the original FIOS router/modem and make that a modem only (which is something I have read you might want to do), so the new wifi from the new router is the only one.
Also, when this didn't drastically help out my wifi (in my new room with my AV receiver and projector I still had issues with connectivity when streaming Netflix to the projector) I bought a wifi extender (TP Link AC1750). I saw in the instructions it helps to be able to plug it directly in the device, but it also said it should be about halfway or less closer to the router. I have it plugged in right next to the PS4 in the new room, but fear since it is as far away from the router as the AV receiver and PS4 is, it's not doing much good extending the signal and I should just unplug it and put it about halfway between to two points. Since I still often have connectivity issues in that room (and it's kind of a small house) doesn't that sound like the best thing to do now? Thanks.
