I recently joined Fido internet service. I bought a wi-fi router during the Xmas holidays. It is ASUS (RT-AC5300) Tri-band wireless 4-port gigabit gaming router. According to the tech who came to set up the Fido modem, he said that router is not compatible with Fido modem! Since I have several low/weak signal spots at the back of my house, I would like to know if there is a way to get that router to work as a signal extender?
If not, which wi-fi extender is compatible with Fido modem (white tall box)?
Thank you in advance for your advice.
After I changed the Residential Gateway function box from Enabled to Disabled. It worked for 30 minutes, then the internet signal was dropped. I had to reset the Fido modem to factory setting and reset my wi-fi for Fido modem. Not sure what caused the drop signal. Any other setting it might work for this router?
