My signal on my iPad is at 1/2
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Should I try through my cable box instead?

If you can connect the TV and router using cable, you can connect but the distance is long and you might be running long cable for connect the TV and router. In this case we can try alternate troubleshooting

  1. Please disconnect power cable from the TV
  2. Disconnect the power cable from the router
  3. Once the TV and router is completely powered OFF
  4. Turn ON the router
  5. Wait for 1-2 min
  6. Turn on the TV
  7. Check the internet status on the TV.

Between on the phone with Rogers getting new router, re hooking computers and phones after 5 hours I think I'm toast ��

I understand your concern and I am really sorry for that, if you can try to connect the router and TV using cable it might fix the signal program. You can try to check with them and you can reach us later. If you have any other concern or else if you face any technical issue, I will be available to help you. Thank you for your patience.
