Wireless Repeating Function
You can set up the router to be used as a wireless base station or wireless repeater in a
wireless distribution system (WDS). A WDS lets you expand a wireless network through
multiple access points instead of using a wired backbone to link them. A wireless base station
connects to the Internet, can have wired and wireless clients, and sends its wireless signal to
an access point that functions as a wireless repeater. A wireless repeater can also have
wired and wireless clients, but connects to the Internet through the wireless base station.

repeater access point.
