@Statman 

 

Have you ever bought the TP-Link router? 

 

We can use a second router to extend the wifi range by connect it to the main one.

 

Inevitably, the speed from the second router will be slower than the speed from the main router directly due to the diagram, distance and other interferences.

 

While except the router, there are some network expansion devices you can consider whether they can satisfy your needs.

 

Like the powerline adapters and range extenders. https://www.tp-link.com/uk/home-networking/powerline/ & https://www.tp-link.com/uk/home-networking/range-extender/

Note: The performance of powerline adapters depends on the powerline environment, please ensure that the whole house running under the same power circuit. 

 

Good day.

Pretty much all routers can be run in AP Mode (Access Point Mode) which disables the router's DHCP server and firewall, and will act as a wireless access to point to your main router. This is a fantastic way of extending wifi coverage and speed. Connect your AP router via the Internet socket to your main router's lan socket and it'll basically act like a wireless switch. Of course if you dont need wireless at the access point, a switch would be the better option.

 

Just be sure to setup the router as AP before you plug it into your isp router.
