I received an extender after talking to Verizon since Wi-Fi in my home office on the second floor is weak. No matter where I place it the light stays solid yellow. Even ONE room over form the router. Is there any way to actually get it to work?

What extender model, and what router model are you using? Yellow solid means the extender can't link up to the main router.

It is recommended to connect the extenders back to the main router by using Ethernet or Coax. This provides the best performance, and also solves for problems encountered where the signal from the main router is too weak for the extender to use wireless backhaul.

Also, not all Verizon Fios routers can wirelessly connect an extender. Hence my ask about what Verizon router you have. G1100 and CR1000A will require Ethernet or Coax backhaul IIRC. If the router is an ActionTec, it's in need of an upgrade.
