I'm assuming that all that is true and good. I don't think the OP is saying his internet speed is the problem though he could certainly check it easy enough. (speedtest.net) If it were me I would get a decent small business router to go after his cable modem and a separate WiFi access point and locate it somewhere central to where his devices are.I'm assuming you have a cable or other high-speed connection available for your Internet service...
When you live in the middle of nowhere sometimes that kind of service is about as good as you can get.Hold on now, that's a completely different ball game. What kind of dish and who provides it? Usually with that kind of setup you can't have very high expectations.
"Rise Broadband" the provider by any chance?We have wireless internet via dish from a point about 8 miles away. IDR the speed, but certainly not in the gigabit range. Not the slowest either. My nearest neighbor is 1/4 mile away.
The idiot light on my router that says we have communication is usually ON but recycling power to both the router and the switch helps for a while. Probably wouldn't have to cycle the switch.
I requested all phones have the open apps closed. We do have two ROKUs going now but the TVs are not always on when we have issues. Early morning with only me actively online is just as likely to be a problem as evenings with everyone home.
A new router could possibly help but the choices are mind boggling. IMO, it would be easier to pick a new spouse.
