I’m looking for instructions to connect a rock space extender to uverse. Will the uverse wireless box connect via the extender?

Hey, @Archie64, we'd be glad to help you set up your wireless box.


Just to clarify, are you trying to use your 3rd party extender to connect a wireless U-verse set top box to your internet? If so the receiver must be paired with the wireless access point it comes with to connect, it can't connect directly to the extender. Make sure the wireless access point is wired through Ethernet to your gateway, and pair it with your receiver.


The extender itself can still be used on the network to improve your Wi-Fi signal, but you will have to refer to the device's instructions or manual for details on how to set it up.


For in depth steps on how to set up your receiver with the wireless access point, please check out our article on Installing a Wireless Access Point and U-verse TV receiver.
