My system is Xubuntu 16.04 and I installed a second router in my house to boost the wifi signal. This second router is a TP-LINK TL-WR802N and it is set as a REPEATER and works with no problem. I would like to ask: is it possible to set this second router as an ACCESS POINT ? I read somewhere when a router is set as a repeater it gives a half of a speed which should be 300Mbps. So far I couldn't get it work on TP-LINK configuration page. I appreciate some help. Thanks, Vladi.

  • Unless you intend to connect the router with a cable I thinks the mode makes no difference for WiFi. – GabrielaGarcia Sep 12 '18 at 23:45
