Admin please move this if I'm off target, but I'm not so good on my lingo here.
I have a Linksys RE6500 which I brought on the recomendation of a very tech savvy friend but who doesn't always pay attention.
I have run an ethernet cable from a building with strong wifi into a neighboring building. I have been using this cabled connection for some fixed devices but I also wanted a router or booster or wired access point so that I could connect phones etc via wifi to the ethernet port in this building. My friend reccomended the RE6500 for this job but as far as I can tell, it will only repeat a wifi signal and will not accept an ethernet cable and then create a wifi signal from that.
Is there a workaround here? If not, can somebody tell me the type of product I need and if there is a particular model anyone would recomend.
