How WiFi boosters work
WiFi boosters, also known as range extenders or signal boosters, help expand your wireless network coverage by amplifying the existing signal. They pick up your router’s WiFi signal, amplify it, and then rebroadcast it, ensuring that you get a strong and stable connection throughout your home.
