Does having two WiFi extenders close to each other affect WiFi speed?

No, each extender will act independently and won't be faster if you put them next to each other. If you're able, try testing your internet speed with a wired connection, just to confirm that it is your wifi that's the issue and not your connection itself.

He's adding extra interference to his environment which will decrease performance.


The OG PS4 only had a 2.4g adapter, your best bet is either wired or a 5ghz wifi bridge to wire your PS4 into that integrates into the rest of your network.

I am trying to increase PS4 WiFi speed 

You might have an increase in wireless coverage, but at the expense of speed since there will be more signal interference.


When you say “wireless extender”, what devices are you using to do this? Are they in any way wired to a base router/switch or are they totally wireless communicating with the base and clients simultaneously?


If you want to get the most reliable connection, run an ethernet cable between the PS4 and your switch/router.
