Anything new for this issue?I want to have Optik TV in my garage, but it's out of range for my router. I read the post from 2018 which said there may be something in the works. Hoping there is....

The powerline extender I mentioned earlier will have both a wifi access point as well as an ethernet port. I would recommend using the ethernet to the Optik TV box and you should be good to go.

Remember, Wi-Fi is a 2 way communication. It is not just the router that needs to have great enough signal, so does the Optik box. Currently, there is no change to the Optik boxes to increase their range. Have you any means to run an Ethernet cable to your garage?

@65Val You have conduit i assume------ 1 telephone ------ 1 coax-----in a 3/4 conduit. Use the coax and pull a good pull string in to conduit . Them remove tell wire and pull 2 cates and 2 tell wires back in with a new good pull string also. Redo the ends and hookup Prime cables has a rj45 crimper with a cable tester for under $ 20 and you can buy the rj45 ends also. I have it works great. Best to add extra cate cable you never know.

Cates?...rj45?...Sorry, not familiar with those terms...I'm not a tech. All I see on the back of the Optik wireless receiver box is Power in, HDMI out, USB, Ethernet and optical sockets.

Cates = Cat 6 ethernet cable
rj45 = the name of the connector on the end of an ethernet cable.

Powerline networking has served me well for years. Something like this would likely do the trick:
TP-Link AV600 Powerline WiFi Extender (TL-WPA4220 KIT) - Powerline Adapter with N300 WiFi, WiFi Boos...

The power line adapter extends ethernet to the location of your TV. You then use it for the TV signal.

Here is some additional information on powerline. Very close to plug and play:
