Which is better Cox pods or extender for a dead spot in the house
IMO the optimal option would be to run ethernet to that side of the house to install a access point. As for the Cox Pods, I think they are over priced. You can find small wireless repeaters for 50-60$. I assume you have the Cox Panoramic gateway?
yes, call me stupid but I don’t know how to do all that. lol. I know a lot but not that in-depth.
What's the make and model of your router?
As for running an Ethernet cable, use this example: If you wanted to install a cable-box in the "dead" room, is there a coaxial connector already on the wall in this room? If not, how would you run a coaxial cable to this room? Could you...would you...should you?
The same goes for an "access point." Is there already an Ethernet connector (LAN connection) on the wall of this dead room? If not, would you run a cable?
A wire is your best option; however, if you don't have the means for a wired connection, we'll roll back to your wireless option.
Technicolor CGM4141. in my dead spot room where I watch TV/Stream, etc. I do have a coaxle cable but it’s my only one coming in to where my TV is
...so running an Ethernet cable to the dead room would not be practical?
How far does the Panoramic reach...with a strong signal...before the dead room? You could probably connect an access point at this spot.
MoCA could be an option but unless you also rent a Wireless cable-box, I think Cox disables this feature on Panoramic.
The Panoramic is a bloated and weak router. You could probably solve this by just buying your own router with a stronger transmitter. Cox just wants your cash: weak router, overpriced pods and no delicious MoCA unless you also 'fess for this.
