If you have a router at home and want to extend the range of your Wi-Fi signal, you don’t necessarily need a Wi-Fi repeater with WPS. Often, you can connect a Wi-Fi extender without WPS simply by using your router’s Wi-Fi settings and choosing the correct password.
WiFi extender setup is known as the ultimate method to increase the range and speed of the current wireless network. A router is enough to reach the Internet signals to cover a small house with a WiFi connection, but it cannot cover a large apartment or office. Therefore, you cannot transmit the Internet to the dead zones of your home. In this case, setting up a WiFi extender helps solve the problem. After completing the WiFi extender setup, the existing WiFi signals from the router will be re-broadcast to provide you with WiFi in every corner of your home.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your router to your PC by unplugging the end. You can then connect it to the range extender. A range extender will be able to communicate with the PC via Ethernet.
