Our Uverse wireless signal has had problems since we had it installed. What can we do to get a stronger signal that will cover our house and not fade out so that Netflix, for instance, is constantly reloading?

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Are you using a router (or modem/router combo) provided by ATT?

If so, you can set up either a range extender, or a secondary router/access point, which will give you better coverage.

If you can tell me more about the current setup, I can advise further on specifics.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
