New Install - Uverse Equipment Low Quality?
Switched to Uverse the other day (haven't had it since about 2013), but feel as though the equipment we received is extremely dated. It seems as though this equipment is worse than what we had 6 years ago. Do I have up-to-date equipment? Should I be requesting something else.
Things I've seen so far:
- Range on wifi is terrible
- Picture freezes constantly
-TV remotes don't support RF?!? They only do IR, which surprises me. Every other provider does RF and I was pretty certain our remotes back in 2013 did with Uverse
Received the following:
-DVR - Motorola VIP2262V2
-TV boxes - Cisco IPN330HD-SG-A
-WiFI Gateway - MotorolaNVG589

In regards to the picture freezing, since you’re subscribed to U-Verse, troubleshooting the Wi-Fi will resolve the receiver issues as well. If you’re still having issues with your Wi-Fi, you may have to purchase Wi-Fi extenders, such as Airties to better help with connectivity in your house.
