      Hi, DEEDEE. This range extender (RE7000) is capable to increase your wireless range up to 10,000 square feet. However, thick walls, metal objects, appliances, ​and mirrors will cause interference that will affect the performance of your device.

    will this wi-fi boost my signal to my ps4 i have AT&T U-verse cisco . keep losing or week signal late at night when no one is using any wi-fi and in the afternoon when no one but me r home ???   (3 Answers)

      Answer

      Yes definitely - just make sure you extend the 2.4GHz network (unless you have a new PS4 Slim/Pro that supports the 5Ghz network). The key point is that you have to install the extender not where the PS4 is but somewhere in the middle between the PS4 and the main router - so this device acts as a 'half-way' repeater. You still need to have a good signal to the repeater from the main wifi for it to carry onto the PS4 but then the PS4 should connect to this without any problems,

        Answer

        No, Rich12. The Linksys RE7000 can only extend the wireless signal coming from your wireless router or access point so you can get Wi-Fi signal on your wireless devices to hard-to-reach areas in your house.
