        I have Comcast also, which was the reason my signal was week. Their stock routers aren't top of the line. This worked fine.

        Answer

        It should work. I have nearly 5,000 square ft of living space on two levels and I conducted a speed before installing the extender and my signal was getting 3 Mps after using the extender the singal.is at 88 Mps.

        Answer

        Well it depends upon where everything is. You should position this device "midway" between where your router is and the current dead zone. Then it can connect to your existing wifi and extend it into the area that doesn't have good coverage. I can see and connect to it thru a couple of walls and a floor. Regular US frame construction although one wall is a 2x6 wall instead of a 2x4 wall.

            Answer

            I'm not sure. This NETGEAR EXTENDER will take an existing WiFi signal and make it go farther than without it. For example, I used this to get my Spectrum Modem/Router, which is up on the third floor, extend the WiFi signal to the first floor and outside so I could get my Ring Doorbell to work. Without it the Spectrum Router only had a weak WiFi signal on the bottom floor (and practically none outside) so the doorbell didn't work. I plugged the NETGEAR into the second floor living room outlet and it works great. The signal reaches inside and outside and with full strength and I was able to do the setup etc., with Ring. The NETGEAR WiFi Extender connects to your existing WiFi and then it will issue its own signal and assigning it the same name with *_EXT (after the name so you know it's the Extender that you're connected to). When you first set it up you do that in the same room where the modem/router is and then you move the NETGEAR to the area that's in-between the strong and weak WiFi signal. If your U-Verse Receiver is also the modem/router for that's sending out your WiFi signal then it should work.

            Answer

            The extender doesn't increase or decrease your speed, per se; that is determined by your internet provider. The extender helps to eliminate wifi "dead spots".
