ATT Router Problems (static IP? get my own router? mesh?)
Hi ... I have had ATT Fiber 1000 for 1.5years now w/ PACE ATT equipment. For the most part has been fine. I certainly don't get the 1000 speed (closer to 300 on wifi) but hasn't been an issue until late. We have used a TP-Link to extent which has been a little more challenging, while dual banded it typically defaults to rebroadcasating only one band. Recently every morning we have been having to restart the whole system - while all lights blinking fine, poor to non existent connectivity for devices.
- we have a lot of devices, should we be thinking about assigning IP addresses for static devices (computers, printers, video cameras)
- should we think about our own router (increased performance/security)(other forum posts indicate not too complicated)
- for extension should we be looking at an extender or the mesh systems?
