Using my Linksys Velop for IP Passthrough or getting AT&T's wifi extenders
Just got the AT&T Fiber 1gbps and the gateway that came with it is pretty good but it had to be placed in the basement and the signal on my second floor gets really weak. I have the Linksys Velop 3 router mesh system, with a node on each floor (basement, 1st and 2nd). I understand AT&T doesn't have bridge mode on their gateway so I was hoping to get the community experts' advice on whether I should use ip passthrough or pay AT&T the extra $10/mo for their wifi extenders? logic screams use ip passthrough but based on limited research it seems i may see a drop in bandwidth and will need to rely on the firewall of my Linksys router vs. the ATT gateway? Thank you in advance for your support.
