How to make Wifi Repeater/Extender at home using your Android Phone

How to make Wifi Repeater, Extender at home using your Android Phone

If you want to use your Android device as wifi repeater/extender there can be many reasons like your laptop is not catching wifi signal where your phone catches it, or you want to use that wifi network on multiple devices but you are restricted to only a few devices, whatever the reasons be let’s cut it short.

There is no any successful app in the market for this purpose. Here I am sharing a very small and easy trick which will work on all android powered smartphones no root required to help you from all these problems.

So all you need is an Android Smartphone. And follow the steps given below:

Connect Your Android Device to any wifi network.

Now go to settings and then tethering and portable hotspot.

Here you will get two modes to share your wifi network i.e. via USB tethering or via Bluetooth tethering

you can connect the other device by any of these options.

Do Not Click On Wifi Tethering as This Will Turn Off The Bluetooth

P.S.: Inbuilt Bluetooth tethering option is only available on Android devices running Android version 4.0 or later.

If your Android device is not that much upgraded then you can install any Bluetooth tethering app available in the market suitable for your android version like PdaNet+.

How to connect using Bluetooth tethering:

First Of all Pair the Android device with the another device via Bluetooth.

Now in tethering and portable hotspot enable Bluetooth tethering.

For Windows device:

Navigate to Devices and Printers

Select your android device and right click on it.

Select Connect Using Access Point

Done!!! Now You can use your Android Device’s wifi connection on your Windows laptop.

For Android powered devices:

On the other Android device select the name of your paired Bluetooth Android device with wifi connection.

Select Internet access in Profile Column.

Done!!! Now you can share the Wifi Internet connection on other device using Bluetooth Tethering. There are many drawbacks of this method:

Since Both Wifi and Bluetooth tethering are on at the same time it consumes a lot of battery. So you can plug your device into charger and use.

Also, Bluetooth Tethering does not provide as much of speed and Connectivity range as of Wifi Tethering.

Another way is via USB tethering, for this, we just need to connect the android device with wifi connection to our PC using USB cable.

Then navigate to Tethering and Portable Hotspot and select USB tethering.

Done!!! Now you are sharing your Android Device’s wifi network to your PC using USB Tethering.

This method is also useful when your PC does not has the wi-fi adapter and you want to use the Wifi Internet connection.

There is an app in the market called fqrouter2 which supports wifi repeater option on very few rooted Android device. You can give it a try if you want.

I hope you liked this post. Keep reading and comment if you have any question or problem.

Thank you 🙂

Wireless-n WiFi Repeater / WiFi Extender – WiFi Repeater router, Setup & Review – No Name

In this video see a No Name / Brandless Wireless-N WiFi repeater and/or WiFi Range Extender setup, repeater configuration and review. I bought this off of ebay for $12.00. See me do a WiFi repeater installation and see how to setup a WiFi extender for a WiFi booster of your existing WLAN network. Watch how to setup Wireless-n WiFi repeater and have a wireless amplifier extender pushing your signal out another 30 to 50 feet from your existing wireless router.

It’s not hard for anyone to learn how to install WiFi extender and get WiFi repeater setup instructions simply by viewing my video in just a few minutes. It’s not hard to figure out where to place WiFi extender after you watch my how-to video.

Get more range for your WLAN network at home and office with a wireless range extender. This wireless-N WiFi repeater extended my WiFi Netgear router sigal further than I expected it to do. I was able to get a consistent wireless signal outside on my porch and patio using my tablet, mobile phone and laptop.

Is this WiFi repeater going to last for the long run? I don’t know. It was made in China but just about everything is today. So for $12 why not give it a try. Cheaper than paying $79 plus tax at your local Walmart or Office Depot with a brand name on it that was also made in China!

So far I’ve been using this for a few days and it has work good as a WiFi router range extender or wifi range router repeater extender booster if you like to use that long phrase instead. For me it’s just a WiFi repeater that repeats my fair to good signal for a longer distance. Like on the other end of my house or even in my neighbors house. Yep for real!.

Some important things to remember are:
1) If your WiFi repeater is to close to your main router, they will compete against each other’s signal since they are both on the same WiFi channel, 1,6, or 11. So you must distance the WiFi extender far enough away to so the channels don’t overlap each other. This will only slow down your LAN/WLAN. Hence, defeating your reason for installing a Wireless-n WiFi repeater to begin with!

2) I believe in surge protectors. Put your wireless repeater on one. Protect it against power outages and AC surges. You might just call it network or electronic insurance, just like car insurance or auto insurance for your box. I know it was only $12.00 but you do want it to last for a while, right? Don’t let the power company kill your new WiFi repeater extender during the night or day when you are not home.

3) Set up can be done by a laptop, computer desktop/tower, tablet or cell phone with WiFi connectivity with an Internet Browser. But it can also be done by a hard wired RJ45 LAN cable too. See my last note for instructions on how to use a RJ45 cable for setup.

BTW: Don’t allow yourself into thinking that this is a WiFi router. A WiFi repeater router, a network WiFi repeater extender are two entirely different dogs. A router routes internet information and the other extends and/or repeats the information on a network that a router routes from the Internet out onto your network. Think of this device more as a WiFi range extender. Some times it’s also refer to as a router range extender, a repeater extender, wifi booster extender or wireless router extender. But they all just repeat your wireless signal halfway between your wifi router and where you want to set up shop. How to Expand Your Wireless Range across your house or yard using this cheap made in China no name no brand Wireless repeater for all your computer devices including cell phones.

Steps for Hard Wired Setup & Hook-up:
Here’s how to go about setting it up, if you don’t have a laptop or computer connected via WiFi, in other words, your computer is connected by way of a hard wired RJ45 LAN cable. Keep in mind that the following procedure is based on you having at least a WiFi router & modem plus the repeater unit:

1) Plug the WiFi Repeater/Extender into a AC wall socket and wait a minute or two.
2) Than connect your computer with the WiFi Repeater by using the enclosed RJ45 LAN cable (you will need to get one if your unit did not come with a RJ45 LAN cat5/6 cable) one end plugs into the RJ45 port on the left side of the repeater and the other end goes into your RJ45 port on your computer.
3) To complete the setup, follow my video steps starting at opening up a web browser and type

One more last thing. This may not necessary be the best wireless range extender but it’s one of the lowest price repeaters I’ve ever come across that actually works GREAT.

Some New Information as of 01/14/2017
The other day while surfing the around the internet I found something interesting over at It seems that even Walmart is getting in on the act. I just Googled wifi repeater walmart or wifi extender walmart, and sure enough they are selling something very similar to the wifi Extender/Repeater seen in my video review that I bought off eBay. Check it out if you are curious.
