WiFi Extenders that are compatible with Cox Panoramic WiFi
I have Cox Panoramic WiFi. I also had 3 of the pods. My signal is not as strong as it should be. Are there any WiFi extenders that work with Cox Panoramic WiFi? If so, please provide the 3 best ones. Thanks.
Wifi signal strength and range is determined by many factors... wall construction, flooring materials, access point placement, interference or congestion from other surrounding wifi networks, including the quality of the main wifi router product itself. Without a detailed description of your home environment related to these factors, it is difficult to recommend any product. That being said, most likely the majority of wifi extenders on the market will probably work, although how easy it is to get them configured and connected to your network is difficult to say.
I purchased my own cable modem and wifi mesh system instead of paying the monthly rental fee for the Panoramic. Over time, you will save money by purchasing your own equipment and enjoy greater configuration and feature options.
Pods 2.0 deliver up to 2x higher speed of first-generation Pods. Pods 2.0 are Tri-band 802.11ac with a dedicated 5Ghz backhaul channel and two Ethernet ports for LAN/WAN connectivity. These features significantly improve upon the first-generation Pods to deliver faster speeds and improved coverage. The surface area of Pods 2.0 is larger and like first-generation Pods.
I added the 2.0 Pod to my Pano Wifi, and it does not seem to help at all with internet speed to my backyard office. I still get very slow speeds most days between 10am-12noon.
Regardless of whether I plug the RJ-45 into the Pod or unplug the Pod entirely from the wall, I don't notice much difference even when running SpeedTest on my devices. I am looking into adding some sort of Mesh Wifi system, but not sure if this will replace the need for the Pano device.
