Ever since Shaw switched their modem to Cisco modem/WiFi combo, my WiFi just sucks. I keep losing the signal and I troubleshooted them with changing channels as advised by Shaw Tech Support to no avail. It will work then a few hours or a few days, I will suddenly lose the WiFi signal so I have to reboot my modem. My modem is hooked up in my cable downstairs in my basement, same place as before Shaw changed to Cisco. The question is, which one is the best route for me? Should I buy a new router and set it up as a bridge-mode? Or would the WiFi extender will be good enough? Would I still need to set it up as bridge-mode? I feel that the amount I am paying for my internet does not warrant the signal strength on my WiFi. Wired internet works fine but I do not want to stay in the basement to use an internet nor my iPad mini cannot be wired hooked up.
