I've got one of those modem/router combo units upstairs and it covers most of the house rather well. One of the bedrooms however, can't stream movies due to weak/low signal strength. I suppose it is a deadzone.
I was thinking about installing a wifi ranger extender, however most of them seem to work in one of the two modes: hotspot (new wifi name - undesirable, connected via ethernet to main router - desirable), and extender mode (same wifi name as main router - desirable, ethernet can only function as a jack for smart devices/computers - undesirable; wan't internet to come over ethernet to this device).
My question is: is there an extender, that will take an ethernet input and broadcast the same wifi name as the main router (via some configuration settings)? If not, should I go ahead and get a router with bridge mode and use that instead as an "extender"?
