Benefits of Wireless Access Points
Wireless Access Point VS Range Extender
As its name implies, a range extender lengthens the reach of an existing Wi-Fi network. Since range extenders connect wirelessly to Wi-Fi routers, they must be placed where the Wi-Fi router’s signal is already strong, not in the location of the actual dead spot. Wi-Fi access points (WAPs), and range extenders/repeaters (sometimes also known as boosters) are often confused. A Wi-Fi range extender receives a Wi-Fi signal and rebroadcasts it. An access point receives a wired connection and broadcasts it wirelessly. A range extender is just that. Extends the range. At the expense of actual performance. It has to talk in both directions at once. An access point is just to provide Wi-Fi elsewhere. An access point can be thought of as the base station for a Wi-Fi signal. Access points generate the radio waves needed for Wi-Fi transmission, and manage the connection and disconnection of new clients to the network. Range extenders are a kind of wireless repeater. They do not broadcast a unique Wi-Fi signal, but instead rebroadcast the signal already created by an access point.
