Has anyone tried extending the wifi range of their PrimaLuclelab Eagle4 using a wifi extender?

If you succeeded could you please share equipment and setup on the extender, Eagle or client that was needed to make this work.

 

Many thanks

I use a TP-Link Omada MESH access point around my house.

Never any issue with my Eagles outside 

 

Cheers

Simon,

 

Thanks. Are you using Eagle in Host mode?

 

I have a mesh network, so that make sense for me, but I'm still in setup/debgging phase and using Access Point mode. I don't have an HDMI monitor to finish Host mode setup, so that's a consideration. I was wondering if I could use a separate extender of the Eagle wifi signal to boost connection to the desktop computer in my study.
