How do I add wireless access via CAT6 port to the same network?

How do I add wireless access via CAT6 port to the same network?

Thanks in advance for your help..

I have an entire NetGear Gigabit network set up - N750 Router, Range extender, 12 port switch (all NetGear), plus CAT6 wired to multiple locations around my home office.

The Range extender allows me to extend coverage for one part of the house where I can put it in range of the N750. The challenge I have is with another part of the house on the back side where I can't use a Range extender because it's too far. Is there a device (router, access point, etc) that I can plug into one of my CAT6 ports on the other side of the house and provide continued wireless access via the SAME network)? Would that be an access point or could I plug another NetGear wireless router into the CAT6 port & extend?

Thanks much,

Gringeiro

An access point is what you are looking for.

would prefer to get access point but just like many other if buying wireless router is quicker, you can make wireless router as an access point
