Connecting cable box to WiFi extender

Message 1 of 2
(637 Views)

I recently purchased the WiFi extender and I was wondering if I could connect the new small WiFi cable box to the WiFi extender via Ethernet?

 

i currently have just have the WiFi extender connected with the Coax cable and the WiFi works fine but my cable still won’t connect to it. I don’t get a strong signal from the cable box to the tv. The picture is in and out. So I was wondering if I could get a direct internet source to the cable box by connecting a Ethernet cable from the WiFi extender to the cable box and if this will work. I know I could split the coax line (one to the WiFi extender and another to the cable box). It’ll just be easier if I could connect it with a Ethernet cable instead. Thanks

Yes. Connect the ethernet from the extender to the mini and then reboot the mini and it will connect to the ethernet.
