Repeater and the other end to the Ethernet port of your
computer.
Through the LED indicator, you may easily identify the
areas in your house where the wireless reception from
your main router is weak or has no wireless signal.
You may then place the WL580E Repeater between the
wireless router and the location of the weak wireless
signal.
It is ideal for the WL580E Repeater to be placed in a
location, where it can receive good wireless signal
from the wireless router. This is to ensure that a signal
of good quality would be extended to other wireless
devices.
