Is there Wi-Fi extenders with a Gigabit port that are compatible with the T-Mobile gateway. I do not want to use a mesh network or a separate router. Only looking to extend the T-Mobile gateways Dual-Band Wi-Fi.

I’ve heard some folks looking for extender devices. Like other equipment, we’re not able to guarantee they’ll work. We can leave this discussion open in case there’s others that’ll give their personal recommendation. 


After trying three new extenders including a very high end 6G extender I gave up. instead I purchased a mesh network system which seems to work fine although it does not extend the T-Mobile mash creates its own Separate mess Wi-Fi network. 

Go to settings on your mesh network (usually a local web page). Change the router to an “Access Point”. Hookup Ethernet cable (included with the T-Mo Gateway) to the WiFi router. Then your router access points act as beacons to broadcast the internet to other parts of your house. Works great!
