When To Get An Extender?
Netgear Extender Setup is required only in case of connectivity issues with your existing WiFi Network. In other words, you should get a Netgear Extender only if your WiFi Device is placed in a “Dead Zone”. In short, your existing Network’s Connection is poor or non-existent at this location. In such a situation, you must go for Netgear Extenders.
Functioning Of An Extender
Netgear Extender bridges up connectivity gaps between your WiFi Router/ WiFi Access Point and a Computing Device located beyond the Router’s range. Primarily, it works in two ways as mentioned below.
➥ As a Network Extender
It simply connects to your existing WiFi Network and amplifies its range to give you enhanced coverage. In other words, it connects to the Network like any other WiFi Device as a Network Client.
➥ As A WiFi Access Point
Apart from that, it can also be used as a WiFi Access Point like your WiFi Router. To put it in simple terms, it communicates its own WiFi Network. Other WiFi Devices connect to its Network instead of connecting to your Router’s Network. In this way, it acts like your WiFi Router.
