    2:18 hmm, I think what they’re describing here is a WiFi repeater (which is wireless). A range extender is wired, and doesn’t cut the signal in half.

  2. “combo modem router” is known as a Gateway. If you are stuck with your Gateway don’t get a Router and get a Wireless Mesh instead and set it for AP (Access Point) mode. Disable Wi-Fi on your Gateway.
