WiFi Repeater! From the name, it states that repeats your WiFi signal. That's what is its actual use! Let's know more about it! Take a chill pill and enjoy reading this thread!!!
WiFi Repeater! What's That?
A wireless repeater also called wireless range extender takes an existing signal from a wireless router or wireless access point and rebroadcasts it to create a second network. Wireless repeaters are commonly used to improve signal range and strength within homes and small offices.
Did it went bouncer? Let me share a simpler definition! So basically a WiFi Repeater extends the current range of your router by connecting itself with your WiFi Router. So if you have a 2-3 storeyed house, you can use a WiFi Repeater to increase the range of your existing router.
Types of Wi-Fi Range Extenders.

Why Are WiFi Repeaters Actually Used?
A wireless extender is basically a sort of wireless router only, which instead of being connected to an Ethernet cable is connected to another wireless router. It takes any signal that it gets from the router and transmits it, and forwards any signal it receives from a client to the router it's connected to.
Thus, this is how WiFi Repeater works!!
Let me explain you by an example! Suppose we have a Router connected to the socket in the wall. The Router is transmitting perfectly fine, and suppose one of my friend Aarush is surfing Instagram on his Redmi Note 4 via Router. At the same time, another friend Purna wants to surf Mi Community App on her Redmi 4, but Router's signal can't reach her room. Damn!! But wait! Purna is a smart girl, she installs WiFi Repeater in Router's range. WiFi Repeater receives Router's signal and passes it to Purna's phone, who is in her bedroom. Hence problem solved.
Connectivity of WiFi Repeaters!
Some wireless range extending devices connect via a USB port. These USB adapters add Wi-Fi capability to desktop PCs and other devices that have standard USB ports. USB supports not only the data transfers required for networking, but it also supplies a power source so that these adapters do not require electrical plugs.
