In short, the router relay is the combination of more than two wireless routers to achieve the signal relay and amplification, so that wireless network transmission coverage of a wider range. Relay multiple wireless routers, through the interval of a certain distance, so that each wireless router has a variety of signal coverage, so as to play the role of wireless signal.
