Turn Your Windows PC Into a WiFi Range Extender

If you get a weak WiFi signal in certain areas of your home, it’s time to extend your WiFi network range and get the best Internet speed and latency for all your devices around the house. 

This is done via a WiFi repeater (or booster), which is usually a piece of hardware or software that lets you repeat or rebroadcast your main WiFi signal with the same network name and password. 

Read below to find out how you can use your laptop to increase WiFi range and enjoy better wireless signal!

Increase WiFi Range – Hardware Device or Software App?

Do you need to boost the range of your WiFi network, but don’t want to go through the hassle of setting up a hardware WiFi repeater or buying another wireless router? There are easy-to-use free repeater software products that let extend the range of your home or office WiFi. Products like Connectify Hotspot virtual router software allow you to create a WiFi repeater with just a few clicks… and there’s no additional hardware necessary!

The problem is most repeater software free applications do this without bridging.  This means that clients that join your hotspot don’t get real IP addresses from the shared network.  They can get on the Internet through the hotspot, but they’re not really on the network to do any peer-to-peer networking.  So, game consoles will report NAT problems, Chromecast apps won’t find your Chromecast, your Apple TV won’t show up for your Mac to stream to… the list goes on.
