I have a wireless router at point of entry, on a property that has hardwired ethernet. I tried to configure some older wireless routers to appear like they are the same network so that devices wouldn't have to switch networks when moving from zone to zone, but I was unsuccessful and am now looking at buying some new hardware.
When I search on "repeater" I get lots of options for wireless-only repeaters, not ones that are hardwired to the source router and replicate the network. I suspect there is a better term for this, but I don't know what it is. Can anyone help me out? What filters should I use on my hardware site of choice, to limit results just to wireless access points/units that can connect to the base station via hardwire, and appear to devices to be the exact same network?
I realize my hardware may be too old to do this (easily enough for me to figure out), so that's why I was looking for newer hardware. I'm not jumping on the smart home bandwagon, I'm just looking for a cheap solution so I can quit constantly pulling out my phone to switch to a stronger network when the current connection signal gets too low.
