Guys, lets say you buy an wifi access point, can you just plug it into the Power so that it strengthens your signal? or do you have to plug it into the router?
Cause i got a wireless network at home i have set up. My main pc connects directly into the router, then i have another pc that connects wirelessly. My sisters pc connects also but she is to far and the signal is faint. Im not exactly gonna rearrange her whole room so that the pc is closer to the router. I got a heap of access points at work that i can bring home, but if i have to connect them to the router it kinda defeats the purpose. cant i just plug it in the wall so it picks up the signal and re transmitts it? so that it strengthens it? like an antenna?
i do networking, but wireless is kinda new to me.
