How to configure tplink repeater (WA850RE) ? My doubt is, I have to broadcast the same network with the same password as the original network or I can create another network with another password ?

You can find lots of details on the support site for that unit:

If you are using it as a repeater then you'll likely program it for that mode and give it the credentials for the existing WiFi.

It looks as if you can just press the WPS button on your existing router/access point (assuming WPS is configured) and the extender (if powered on and nearby) will connect to it and repeat it.  I looked at this manual:
