Devices not connecting to Wifi Extender
I purchased and set up the ATT wifi extender to expand/improve coverage in my house. (The primary Wifi/Gateway is in a corner of the basement, not ideal). It set up and seems to be working properly. Occasionally a cell phone or laptop will connect the the extender if I am very close to it. (I can see which devices are connected to the Gateway vs the Extender in the ATT Smarthome app). But most devices continue to just connect to the primary gateway with a very weak signal, rather than the extender.
Particularly my desktop pc. It is very far from the gateway, only about 12 feet from the extender, but will never connect to the extender, just a weak wifi signal from the gateway.
Is there a way to force devices to connect to the extender? Is there a reason they aren't finding it? Are there any settings I can change to remedy this?
