HT2000.  I'm using three extenders to get my weak wi-fi around the house.  None of the extenders pick up the 5g signal from the HT2000.  My TV tells me there is a 5g signal but, it is too weak to use; even when the extenders are placed next to the HT2000.  Is there a way to get the 5g signal strong enough to be usable?

Thank you for any advice.

If you're referring to the HughesNet's WiFi Booster, remember to put it about halfway in between the HT2000W and where the signal drops out. This way it extends the signal in the direction of the booster placement. The booster needs to be close enough to the modem to get its signal, but far enough away to extend the signal in the chosen direction.
