There are two different ways to set up your WiFi Surge. The first as a "Wireless Repeater" will create a new extended network for that area of the home which you will need to connect to. However the "Access Point" (AP) mode needs to be connected using an ethernet cable but will not create a separate network for your home. Using AP mode creates a seamless wireless connection throughout your entire home.
There are advantages and disadvantages to each mode.
The Wireless Repeater Mode is typically a much easier setup as it can be done without using an ethernet cord. However it does create a separate network inside your home where you will need to connect in the dead zone area.
The Access Point Mode (AP) requires an ethernet cord to go from your router all the way to the desired location of WiFi Surge. This mode creates a seamless WiFi connection in your house with no extra networks. If you are able to run an ethernet cable to the area this is the preferred method as there is no need to change networks.
