Hello I am new to the internet thing. I have Fios 100/100 internet set up in my living room however I would like to have it in my bedroom. Is there and inexpensive way to move my router there or would I have to call a technician. I have wifi extenders set up but I only get 30 percent of my full speed as if I am in the living room. Thanks in advance.

My Wi FI Extender is in Upstairs Bedroom.

Router is in Office Downstairs.

Have solid coverage on my IPad when I use it upstairs.

What type of wifi extender do you have?

Some are acutally repeaters which give you at best 50% of original speed.

You can conenct rotuer any place that has a coax connection.

So if one of the rooms have it, then try moving the router there.

I have a wifi extender. It is a TP Link AC750. I don't have an upstairs in my apartment so the router is on the same floor while the extender is 25 ft away from the router yet 20 into the back of the bedrooms. I'm not to sure what a coax connection is but I do have spot in the bedroom where a coax cable comes from the wall.  Not sure this is what you mean but that how my setup is.Thanks for replying in advance.

Since the extender your using is wireless and not wired, your speed loss is most likely due to this factor. 

 

A coax connection is simply a place where a coax cable can plug into the Verizon range extender. If you have a cable in the bedroom, then thats perfect! The Verizon extender sends your Internet signal over the existing coax cable (wired, not wireless), and you should have a much better experience.
