How Wi-Fi extenders work
There are two types of Wi-Fi extender: Wi-Fi repeaters and Wi-Fi range extenders.

A repeater re-broadcast the same quality of signal that they receive over Wi-Fi; A range extender re-broadcast the same quality of signal that they receive over wire.
Both devices sit between your router and the hard-to-reach area of your home and provide additional signal power to extend coverage.
