5500sqft concrete house with poor wifi skyhub setup

Hi

 

I would appreciate some advice. I currently have a sky hub and SkyQ setup. The wifi downstairs is fine but theres breaks in the WIFI as you move round the house such as when walking around and facetiming. I have a lardge 5500 sqft house which is concrete so wifi is poor. upstairs and in some parts of the house. My skyQ boxes are wired in and i have a couple of extenders which are ok but not great.

 

Any recomndations of products or on how to get a better wifi connenction?

 

thanks

Re: 5500sqft concrete house with poor wifi skyhub setup

concrete makes it a challenge. Plus you have a large home in 5500sq ft. 

Do you have ethernet ran throughout the home? 

Reason I ask is any extender (even orbi) is going to struggle with concrete. But if you've got ethernet ran throughout, orbi does support ethernet backhaul. That way you've got the same ssid throughout the home, can roam, and can add satellites as needed.

I have 2 SkyQ boxes which are wired to my router. They have free Ethernet ports in. Could I wire my orbi’s to that

I don't know enough about the skyq box to properly answer it
