I just hooked up a Roku streaming stick to the MHL port on my Oppo-103 to take advantage of the Oppo's video enhancements. Unfortunately, the Oppo is in a disadvantagous corner of the house in relation to my Uverse router. The signal is fair but I need a better signal for 1080 streaming. I have heard the uverse router has problems with wifi extenders. but I'm willing to try. Would I be better off boosting my mbps rate from 18 to 24? And would that help?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I don't know of any provider of Internet video that needs as much as 10 Mbps to stream HD content, let alone 18. Unless you're otherwise using your connection, I wouldn't expect the switch from 18 to 24 Mbps to make any difference.
If you're experiencing wireless issues, I would suggest that you get your own wireless router, place it somewhere closer to your Roku/Oppo devices that can still be reached by an Ethernet cable from your RG, and configure that router as an access point as described in post 13 in this thread.
A range extender is probably the worst way to try to increase your WiFi coverage (because it tends to decrease the overall thoroughput).
