Wifi Range

Does AT&T has any option to increase the range of the WiFi ?

I am using an outdoor surveillance camera installed far away from the Internet router box. Image quality is poor and it disconnects several times a day because out of range

ATT AIRTIES... $49.99 dual band... requires ac power and within range of gateway... in effect place halfway between gateway and device providing have ac power... indoor unit, not suitable for outside.

 

Therefore your better bet, if camera is 2.4Ghz wifi would be to purchase an inexpensive 2.4GHz only range extender such as Netgear 300 ($30). The 2.4Ghz range is greater than that of 5Ghz wireless dual band, and the unit has external antenna compared to internal on the artie.
