ATT 4290 Wifi Extender Two?

I own a AT&T 4290 wifi extender that I bought several years ago. I'm thinking of buying another on Ebay. Can I run two simultaneously? If so can they be connected together with ethernet (like backhaul) or just wifi?

I'm at a loss on how strong this thing still runs. I'm getting +/-300 Mps upload and download with this extender connected in another room about 40+ feet away via wifi.

Thank you!

Hi ComfortablyNum, we'd be glad to answer your questions about the Wi-Fi Extender.


Yes, you can use more than one extender simultaneously and connect them to the gateway via Ethernet. If you're not getting the desired speeds with just one extender, adding another is a good option.


For more information, check out our AT&T Smart Wi-Fi Extender FAQ.


If you need further assistance or have any other questions, we'll be here.
