I currently have a netgear nighthawk r7000 router that appears to be aging out, we have to reboot it frequently and parts of my apartment have lost reliable connection.
Smart devices (echos , HomeKit switches and Apple TV’s ) lose their connection frequently.
I am looking for some recommendations on improving my network.
- my apartment is in a high rise building In a major city constructed out of concrete, cement, brick and steel and has wire mesh in the walls. (There is No drywall)
Recently, devices that are in the back of the apartment (ie bedrooms) are experiencing more dropping than before.
while my current isp connection is 100/10. I have gigabit Ethernet in my apartment for connection to my nas.
Our current devices include:
- MacBook Pro 2013
- MacBook Pro 2017 (hardwire and WiFi)
- 2 echo dots
- echo show
- 3 Blu-ray players (1 with Ethernet connection)
- 3 Apple TV 4th gen
- 2 iPhone 11
- 2 iPads
- 2 Nixplay WiFi frames
- 5 iDevices switches
