Can the new Airport Extreme be used as a universal repeater or a network extender?

My current modem/router - Cisco DPC3925 - provides a very limited WiFi range. The current router resides on the ground floor, I want the wireless coverage to extend up to the second and third floor.

Would I be able to use the Airport Extreme as a repeater for my main router and extend my wireless coverage?

If yes, does the Airport Extreme provides a good wireless coverage?

  • Best Answer:

    Yes. Both the AirPort Extreme and Express can be used to extend your network. Using only Apple's AirPort devices, the setup is made simple using the AirPort Utility app on an iOS device. Using the AirPort products in conjunction with other networking brands will need a higher level of skill.
