wireless repeater

Also called an expander, a wireless repeater is a device used to increase the effective coverage of your wireless network. Differing from traditional access points, the newer generation of Wireless-Gwireless repeaters do not need to be directly connected to your network via cables. Instead the device simply needs to be within range of your main access point and it will bounce the signals out to your remote wireless devices.
