1 What Is A Range Extender?
A Wi-Fi Range Extender provides a way to extend your network further. It listens to your current Wi-Fi network signal, and relays it to further areas of your home. It provides a second network that relays your Wi-Fi to an area that didn't get good signal before.
A good way to think about it is like a 'repeater' or a 'bucket brigade'; taking the signal from the router, boosting it so another device can 'hear' it better, and extending it further away than your router can go by itself.
