I am with AT&T...

I am with AT&T U-verse. The router? is a Cisco VEN601. It's connected to an AT&T U-verse Motorola NVG589. I was wondering if I bought a WiFi extender, would my Roku streaming stick work faster/better? FYI, I'm a novice.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update U-verse?

I personally never updated U-verse but it was installed 3 years ago. I don't know how to do that, would I call AT&T tech support?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your U-verse?

Nothing, that's why I'm asking first.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

No but thanks

No, I'm just curious if an extender would help, and if it would help, what brand you would recommend.

Hi, I would like to check the specifications of your products first, so please hold I'll be with you shortly.

Yes, a range extender would definitely boost the WiFi signal strength, In order to suggest you an appropriate one let me check the specifications first.

You are so smart and helpful. Thank you!!

Where it is a Triband(advanced WiFi technology broadcasts WiFi in 3 channels) .

And it is an AC standard extender which would support high speed and compatible to all the routers.
