Sure seems hit and miss with different fire units. For me, I have not noticed any abnormally low performance on it. Maybe the router I have does a better job of reaching the furthest reaches of the house to mask a subpar wifi on the fire but so far it's been great. I recently upgraded my router as I would have issues connecting on weaker devices at the end of the house with the previous router but for me, all devices feel equal under my current setup

Btw
i would stay away from the signal booster devices. Before i got the new router i tried one and for the money it didn't help much and would disconnect every other time so it was more trouble.
Took it back the next day and ordered a new wireless router. Better to upgrade all the way instead of trying to patch/band-aide a bad signal to begin with.

The thing about wifi is it's a two-way street. Both router and client need to be able to hear each other, so boosting signal strength in one direction won't necessarily help unless the unit being boosted is emitting a weaker signal than the other. A signal booster will typically improve data throughput in the direction of the boosted signal (since throughput is proportional to signal strength) but it will probably not allow connections where none were possible before.

If needed change your wifi channe on your routerl to one not overused by others in your area.

Wifi analyzer helps you find the best channel for you
Thanks for this. I installed it and I have lots of bleed outside. I'll try changing the channel and if that doesn't help I'll buy a new router in the Spring.

Sparkle what was your signal strength showing on the app? Red yellow or green zone.

I believe it was showing red.

I also changed the channel and it has made a difference, thanks to those who suggested that. I now have full strength everywhere in my house. Previously I lost a line in the bedroom, but everywhere else was fine. Now outside in my driveway I'm almost at full strength, but when I move to the yard I only have a line or two, but it still seems to stay connected whereas before I lost the connection completely. I was only out there briefly (it's freezing out today, lol) so I can't be sure it will stay connected. I'll test it better on a warmer day.

If you can move the Pc with the router to a more centralized location you may get a better signal. But your router may just not be powerful enough to reach all areas of your house.
My old router couldn't eithrr until i upgraded to one that had the N band inasted of just a and b and g bands.
