this, you need two WiFi routers: one set up as a router and the other set up as a bridge.

Installing your router as a bridge offers the following benefits:
•You can take advantage of gigabit WiFi speeds on current devices.
•Use gigabit WiFi for applications like video and gaming.
•Connect multiple devices like a NAS, Smart TV, NeoTV, Blu-ray player, and game consoles at gigabit WiFi
speeds using a WiFi link.
•Avoid the need for separate WiFi adapters for each device.
For example, you could install the first router in a room such as a home office where your Internet connection is
Then set up the second router in bridge mode. Place the router in bridge mode in a different room such as the room
where your home entertainment center is located. Cable the router in bridge mode to your Smart TV, DVR, game
console, or Blu-ray player, and use its 802.11ac WiFi connection to the first router.
