Signal Strength question

I've been reviewing the community to answer my question about the signal strength indicator but unsuccessful.

I installed a wifi extender and my RSSI went from the low 40's to the high 50's. But a post here states that a RSSI closer to 40 is better.

Is a higher or lower RSS number better?

Re: Signal Strength question

Glad you asked @8rianGriffin ! We actually have a post here in the Community that helps to breakdown a good vs poor RSSI. Ultimately an RSSI of -40 or better is sufficient for optimal video, whereas an RSSI of -60 or -65 is going to see some connection concerns. I hope this helped! Smiley Happy
