WIFI RANGE EXTENSION

Hi,  I have extended my wired internet capability throughout my home by using the WD Poweline devices which is working just fine for me.  Can I now also extend my wireless/WIFI throughout my home by using the WD receiver devices as a bridge to a WIFI signal extender.    That is, can I get a WIFI extender that has an ethernet wired input that I can connect to a WD Powerline receivers ethernet output port.  the WIFI extendert then in turn using that wired input signal to transmit in a wireless manor.   If this is feasible, can you also please recommend  a suitable WIFI extender.  Thank You for your help,   Clarke

Clarke,

I am going to assume that you want to use the WD power line as the network connection for the exender. What I have done in my home is use an inexpensive AP plugged in the far end WD.  Using the same setup as your main wireless different ip addresses and wifi channels, should work for you.  Wireless extenders usually need to be able see the wifi to extend it. I won't recommend any specific equipment.  I've had success extending wifi using cheap APs and expensive 'enterprise' equipment.

Hopefully this answered your question.  Let me know if I can of more assistance.
