Set Up a WiFi Distribution System
The router can function as a WiFi base station or a WiFi repeater in a WiFi distribution system (WDS). A WDS
expands a WiFi network through multiple access points. A WiFi base station connects to the Internet, wired and
WiFi clients can connect to the base station, and the base station sends its WiFi signal to an access point that
functions as a WiFi repeater. Wired and WiFi clients can also connect to a WiFi repeater, but the repeater connects
to the Internet through the WiFi base station. The following figure shows a WiFi repeating scenario.
