There's a zone in my house that's getting slow WiFi. What can I do to extend / boost the signal in that spot?

Hi karim.ratib 

That's definitely frustrating! One thing you can try is, if possible, you can move the modem to a more central location, as that might shift your coverage to reach more spots in your home. If that doesn't work, you can look at adding BlueCurve Pods to your account. You can find out more on our BlueCurve Pod FAQ page here: https://community.shaw.ca/docs/DOC-18593

Another option would be to add third-party WiFi extenders. We don't support third-party equipment, but you can visit an electronics store to get more information if you're interested in that option.

Not applicable

I've been using a DLINK extender for 4 years and is reasonably reliable. The GUI is a bit awful and I forget access points so have to look it up every once in a while. Maybe newer ones are easier. Hopefully.

Thanks both for your replies. I am looking into commercial WiFi extenders and will post my solution when I'm done.
