Wired WiFi Extenders for AT&T Fibre

The walls in my home block a wireless connection between the BGW 320 gateway and devices.

Fortunately, I have CAT6 wiring the ends of my home where WiFi connection is spotty so I can add wired extenders. 

I do have 4-5 year old Netgear Orbi, which I was planning to use instead of the AT&T WiFi but I dropped the idea since there are too many devices connected to the wifi. Switching would require me to go through reinstalling all other devices - something that I would like to avoid. 

Looking for recommendations on which extenders will work. For now, I am thinking of purchasing the extenders. TIA.

Connect the orbi via Ethernet and set it up as an access point. Use the same network name you have now and you won’t need to change any devices.  If that doesn’t work, get a good mesh network system. 

Don’t bother with the att extenders.
