Amazon Firestick

I received an Amazon Firestick as a Christmas gift and I am able to use it on a tv in a room next door to where i have the router. However I am unable to use it properly on a tv downstairs. The screen keeps saying 'router out of range'. Can anyone help me with this please?

Re: Amazon Firestick

it comes with a short extender which keeps it away from the tv body - to improve the wifi reception. You can buy a longer extender or try moving it slightly 9 a 90% adjustment may help) but it's a small device that lacks a powerful wifi antenna. You would be better advised go get either the fire tv box or a roku box ( roku 2 is deal of the day at amazon today) and use a wired connection. via powerline if needed.
