Expand WiFi / connect repeater

Hello,

I bought a wifi repeater and it totally worked.
But, I still have to cover a larger area.
My question is: Is it possible to connect two repeater to cover a larger area. Concrete, I already covered my living room and now I want to place another repeater in the corner to cover my garden. The issue is that I cannot connect from there to the router, so I have to connect to the already existing repeater EX6120.

I would be thankful for any comments.
Model: EX6120|AC1200 Dual Band WiFi Range Extender

Re: Expand WiFi / connect repeater

You can daisy-chain the extender (connecting through another extender), though performance will drop because of the additonal hop.

 

You might consider powerline instead (for instance this: https://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/powerline/PLW1010.aspx)  That would connect back to your main router through your house wiring.  Performance will depend on the details of your house wiring (and the circuit load)
