I need to bridge a local wired network to a LTE/4g/5g hotspot to provide internet access to a small, very rural office. T-Mobile's hotspot have decent coverage at the site. 

I have connected the hotspot to a BrosTrend range extender. It works providing internet to the wired connections but somehow renders access to shared resources on the wired network very unstable. 

I am probably expecting too much from this setup and am wondering what the alternatives are. 

The office is small, 4 users, sharing a printer and a NAS. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
