I have the TM3200 with 2 of the WiFi Boosts, yet I can seem to keep outside devices connected consistently.

 

Is there away to increase the WiFi signal of these devices?

I don't believe there is any way to increase the signal. Maybe you can change the Boosts location?

I've moved the Boost around the house with little success. One unit is a Raspberry Pi and the other is a Nest camera.

 

Quite irritating.

Do any of the D-Link, TP-Link or other wifi extenders work with the Telus system? I'd add a couple of more Boosters if they weren't $120.00 a piece. I pay Telus too much now on monthly basis.

I use a powerline wi-fi extender for a dead spot in our house. They work reasonably well and are fairly simple to set up. Something like this would likely fit the bill:

Well, I went with the D-Link DAP1610's and they were a breeze to set up. The problem I found, was these devices were under minding my DHCP Reservations in my router.  Static IP's I had created in the router, were now all over the place and the connectivity these devices failed and were not accessible by other devices that relied on the static IP.

 

Is there something I'm missing here? I trying making the DAP1610's static IP's and also have them get their IP's from the router, didn't seem to matter.
