multiple networks question

2 years ago
last modified: 2 years ago

I'm visiting my daughter who has several homes in the same compound, all on AIRBNB. She asked me to help increase the WiFi signal strength in one of them. Currently, the "back house" gets it's WiFi from a extender hard wired to the Spectrum router in her main house, about 130 feet away. I'm staying in that house and it seems that the signal does seem weak, especially when streaming on my phone; that is the complaint I trying to fix.

A second, closer house, called the "side house" has another connection from Spectrum, so she gave me an old Apple Airport, with an extender, and thought that would work, but I cannot get it to work at all. I tried plugging my laptop into the cable modem's Ethernet port, but get no signal. Of course, I have no documentation on any of these devices. Any suggestions?
