I received these bell pods from my bell service and I attach them to the wall and connected them from the bell wifi app but my connection was still bad and for some reason, Ethernet was not working when I attach it to my pc. If I attached Ethernet into one pod and to the modem will the other have better wifi?
 
Looks like they are a type of mesh solution

possible the pod you are trying to use does not have good access to the base station / router, would you be able to describe your layout?

If you have a wifi scanner app on your mobile that might assist you to get optimal placement for the pod locations...

If the pods support the ethernet uplink then connecting directly to the base would work (like an AP) but most I have seen are only to connect ethernet devices to the wifi network (like a bridge)
 
I have not clue what devices you are talking about.

In general the best way to extend wifi coverage is to run a ethernet cable from the router to the remote room and then place a AP in that room. If the devices you have can run as a AP then you should get very good wifi coverage using that solution.
