What is a WiFi Repeater

A WA WiFi repeater is a device that boosts the signal of a WiFi connection and increases the coverage area of the WiFi signal. It receives the existing WiFi signal, amplifies it, and then transmits the boosted signal. A WiFi repeater is similar to a relay system that connects to the WiFi network and rebroadcasts the signal to a larger area of the home or office where there is a poor connection or weak signal. It is also known as a network repeater. WiFi repeaters are easier to set up and configure because they can be placed anywhere at home, even if there is no wired network port. However, a WiFi repeater has a minimum 50% throughput loss, which means that the quality of WiFi signal strength received by the wireless repeater will be the same WiFi signal strength distributed, and latency, or WiFi network response time, is typically increased. A WiFi repeater is not recommended for use in an area that doesn’t have a strong, reliable WiFi signal connection.
