Wireless Connectivity FAQs
How does the 4K wireless box connect and receive a TV signal?
The 4K wireless box connects over WiFi to your BlueCurve Gateway modem. TV signal is delivered via IP (Internet Protocol) to the Gateway and over WiFi to the 4K wireless box.
Since the 4K wireless box connects through my Internet modem, does it impact my Internet speed or bandwidth?
No. The BlueCurve Gateway modem uses a portion of the 5GHz WiFi band, but should not have any effect on the performance of your Internet service.
Can I move the 4K wireless box to a different location in the house?
Yes, you can move the 4K wireless box, provided it maintains a wireless connection to the BlueCurve Gateway modem. Please note, however, that the distance from your XB6, along with other factors in your home (e.g., metal ducts, brick walls, double pane windows, etc.) will affect the video quality on the 4K wireless box.
Can I hide the 4K wireless box out of sight?
Yes. After the remote has been paired, the 4K wireless box can be placed anywhere it can maintain a WiFi connection to your BlueCurve Gateway, like in a cabinet or behind a TV. The BlueCurve TV Voice Remote does not require line-of-sight to the 4K wireless box.
Can I connect the 4K wireless box to my WiFi range extender?
We recommend connecting the 4K wireless box directly to your BlueCurve Gateway for the best viewing experience. We cannot guarantee that the 4K wireless box will work properly over WiFi range extenders.
Can I use another modem to connect the 4K wireless box?
No, the 4K wireless box can only be used with the BlueCurve Gateway.
Will an 4K wireless box work if I have my Gateway in bridge mode?
No, the BlueCurve Gateway must be in gateway mode (not bridged) for a 4K wireless box to work.
