WiFi extender

Can I pair my extender to router with an Ethernet cable. My hope is that by using an Ethernet cable in lieu of wirelessly that I will improve the signal strength. I hope to position the extender in a location so as to improve connection with outdoor WiFi extender which is about 300 feet away. And should I use access point mode.

I meant to say WiFi antennae 200 to 300 ft away

Re: WiFi extender

you can hardwire in extenders and use them in access point mode.

It works great. 

Careful with distance is I think ethernet only supports up to 300ft distance.
