So, like many others, I have to WFH for pretty much the next 9 months. I live in the JC Heights and have a FiOS connection, and my coworkers are constantly complaining about my terrible internet connection during video meetings.
I'm in a situation where the router is on the other side of my apartment, live in a multi-family home with a lot of interference, and have roommates, all of whom occasionally also WFH. Between us and our smart devices, PS4s/Switches, multiple laptops each, tablets, smart phones, etc, we have a ton of devices connected.
I was initially looking into getting a mesh network for our apartment, but it seems that you can only use a Verizon Mesh Network system with FiOS. Considering that I'll likely be moving when my lease is up, I'd rather not sink money into something that only works with FiOS, or just a product I'm being forced to buy for compatability purposes.
Some friends and coworkers have recommended getting a dualband Nighthawk router; however, I'm not sure how much it will solve the suspected interference issues that I'm currently having. My internet connection is so poor in my room, but it isn't *that* far from the router, plus our current router is dualband already, so would a new router really alleviate the problem?
Wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and trying to see what worked best. I just want the best possible connection, so if the Vzw mesh network works better (or if mesh networks are better and theres one that's compatible with fios), I'll go that route.
