Which wifi extenders work with BlueCurve?

Because of the layout of the house, it appears that BlueCurve doesn't reach everywhere, and I need to add a wifi extender. Am thinking of a NetGear WiFi RangeExtender (EX3700) and wonder whether there might be an issues with it and BlueCurve.

Appreciate any thoughts and experiences.

Can you buy one from a store that offers a "no-questions-asked-money-back-guarantee", and try it?

I use a HP keyboard and a Microsoft mouse with my DELL desktop computer, and I have no issues among the 3 companies.  So, I expect that there will NOT be any problems between the BlueCurve hardware (not manufactured by Shaw) and the extender (not manufactured by Shaw).

I was looking at the Netgear extenders, but was reading about how they change the devices' mac addresses when they pass through the extender. I am pretty sure this will mess up the BlueCurve management features.  If you try it, please let us know how it works.

@PurpleRaven BlueCurve pods are available to extend your wifi range. We do have any officially recommended third-party solutions, but if that's what you're looking for hopefully some other members can chime in with what options are working for them!

Thank you. I know you do - it is just that at $10/month, it very quickly accumulates to a significant amount... 😞

So, an update. Just got 2 TP-Link AC1750 Wi-Fi extenders, and just installed the first one. Installation quick, seems to work like a charm after about 5 min process. Now am off to setting up the second one...

@MStraight There isn't a specific brand or model that we would endorse, the original poster in this thread indicated the TP Link was working for them. An electronics retailer in your area that sells this equipment would likely be able to make some suggestions as to which devices they recommend.
