What is the difference between a range extender and a repeater?

Hi Everyone:

     I am wondering what the difference is between a range expander and a repeater.  I assume that functionally they do about the same thing, namely, extending a RF wave.

     I look forward to hearing from everyone regarding this question.

    Thank you

Hi There:

      Thank you so much for the link.  I now have a Linksys Wireless - G  Range Extender and it works great!!!  The signal on the wireless has shifted from being very poor to excellent.  I strongly recommend this product to anyone who has been going through the frustration of weak wireless signal strength.
