ex6100 extender connect by cable

Hello,

i want to use it as a "hot spot" on my room that spread a wifi signal form my wall ethernet port because the room is too far form my router.

there is a switch between my room and the router, that split the enternet to the room's.

 

i can use the rj45 port of this device to input an internet connection for spread a wifi in my room?? or i need an other product for this job ?

 

thanks a lot.

 

bythe way, 

if i just connect it to the power without internet input at all,

i can make a LAN network for a LAN-Party ?

Flip the extender/access point switch to access point. Then you can connect it to the Ethernet port in the room.

You don't need Internet, but you do need a router for its DHCP server.

So, this device (ex6100) is can be use as Wifi extender

OR a Wifi access point - for my needs?

i get it right ? what i ask for is just an access point devices 

and this product can do the trick for me?

 

- only in case my router can provide a DHCP server through the switch

for and internet connection of course..

*my swith is a NETGEAR GS308.. the router is modem box of my internet provider.

 

THANKS A LOT !!
