Wireless extenders/repeaters

Has anyone had an actual experience with or know for a fact THESE work well with Roku's?

How about you @atc98092  or @Tivoburkee 

Do wireless extenders help with Roku's?

Anyone?

Re: Wireless extenders/repeaters

I've never tried an extender. I just use more than one access point in the house, all wired into my Gigabit network. But I have heard some users report success. If you're going with 5 GHz, make sure they aren't using a DFS channel, or the Roku won't see it.

Re: Wireless extenders/repeaters

When I moved into my current place the internet modem was in the kitchen on other side of house from the bedrooms where internet was needed. The landlord my Niece's ex,was my roommate, he installed one, so he used it with his roku, while I just used 2.4 & 5 ghz. I logged on to it originally, but didn't see any bump in performance from signal in the clear. Now the modem is in the bedroom, so no more need for it.
