Fios Network Entender

Message 1 of 3
(709 Views)

Today is my Fios Network extender day.  I plug extender into my pc via ethernet cable. 

 

I did notice that the wireless 5 green light is not blinking.  2.4 is OK

 

My intend is to purchase a  fios extender to replace a wireless repeater ( non verizon branded)  This repeater has 2.4 and 5.  Just curious why the network extender does not see 5 bandwidth

 

Could it be the coax cable from the wall to the unit ?

 

Thanks

I cannot say for sure but I have the Netgear R6300 repeater and it was easy set up with my Netgear Nighthawk Router. Brand-Brand could be why both bands on mine work.

 

would make no sense to not show both 2.4 & 5 on the repeater. I don't use coaxial so I cannot say if that is the root cause.

My WCBN3000N has both 2.4 and 5 green fed from coax .

When "traffic" detected light blinks green...mostly on 2.4..guess that's where most traffic occurring.
