Re: Upgrading Router

Hi @Daddysmell,

 

You can check the stability of your Internet connection by bypassing the router and connection your computer straight to your ISP's modem and see if the issue occurs. If it does, we recommend contacting your ISP.

Hi @Daddysmell,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Yes, most, if not all NETGEAR extenders work with other home routers that use the same wireless standard.

Re: Upgrading Router

Hi @Daddysmell,

 

1. Please make sure that the PS4 is connected to the network either via WiFi or Ethernet.

2. If you are experiencing frequent disconnects, please make sure that the connection from your ISP's modem is stable.

3. That stability/reliability of your Internet connection may not be related to your subscription speed.
