Wireless extender for FiOS
Posted by: macphanatic
Date: April 21, 2022 03:33PM
Looking to buy one or two devices to extend my wireless network (FiOS modem). The locations that I would put said devices have gigabit ethernet run to them. So, I want adapters that are wired and plug in via a cable (not directly into an outlet. Would love to find one that I can mount outside as well. Any recommendations?

how far? whats the signal like the places you want to extend?

FiOS isnt anything special.

This would be fine: [www.amazon.com]

I want to connect it via gigabit Ethernet. It can’t plug directly into an outlet. It either needs to be corded or powered by PoE.

I bought a couple of these, and they worked fine as independent access points. They were too clunky to integrate as one seamless network. So when I want to use them, I had to switch networks.

The AP that was suggested in the prior post is intended to plug directly into a wall receptacle, so I suppose they want one that has a longer cord, or, PoE.

Extension cord? Just going to amazon and hitting "poe wireless extender" will prob find a bunch.

My wireless FiOS ATT router seems to go pretty dang far? If I walk out my front door, cross the street... still have a signal... maybe 75 feet? 100 ft+ radiaus.

Have you tried yours?

I’d recommend a UniFi wireless access point such as

Ubiquiti UniFi 6 Lite Access Point | US Model | PoE Adapter not Included (U6-Lite-US) [www.amazon.com]

I’m not sure if that’s the best price. I think a paid about $100 each. Config is rather technical
