Streaming a video from my pc video server to household tvs, sometimes I get numerous flashs
Plays for 2 min, flash, plays for 2 or 3 min, flash
This only occurs on the tv furthest from the PC, and not every day.
Would a TP link AC750 WiFi extender fi

Usually with streaming video (UDP) you get blocky streams or frozen screens. An entire signal drop is a rarity unless there is a lot of data loss. (Missing an a couple key frame and the buffer empties.)

I would say it's a compatibility issue. What software are you using for streaming? What format?

What's your signal strength at the TV? You can use VREMs WiFi analyzer to analyze signal strength close to the TV. (You'll find it free on android play store. It's open source software.)

using a plex server to multiple rokus. All work fine except the one furthest from the router, which on occasion dislays quick, blank screens.
So the software/hardware is all compatible.
