I bought a powerline set TP-Link TL-PA7017P (french sockets)

 

I would like to provide wifi capability at the end of this "network".

 

Could you suggest products that would do this, please?

 

 

I am not clear whether this is how a wifi "amplifier" works?

Like TL-WA855RE

Or is this just getting the existing wifi signal and extending it? In which case, it can only reproduce whatever bandwidth it gets, further...

 

 

I would like something that gets internet signal through the powerline and pushes it as a wifi signal.

 

 

Thanks

@EricMam 

Good day.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

for the TL-PA7017pKIT, they are wired adapters with no wifi ability;

so if you need wireless adapter, you could have a look as TL-WPA8630Pkit;(or models like TL-WPAxxxxx, W means wireless)

Thanks a lot.

@Solla-topee I was hoping I could just connect one of the TL-WPA.... items and it would communicate with the TL-PA...
 

Is it not the case?

 

If not, could I just not put any wifi router at the end of the ethernet cable from the TL-PA?
