will this boost the signal from my hotspot on my phone

I use my hotspot on my phone to connect. Will the airport work with this or do I need a hardwired internet connection?

    You'll need a hardwired connection. The AirPort Extreme or Express need to be plugged into a modem that connects into a cable/DSL/fibre network (Comcast, TImeWarner, Verizon Fios, AT&T as examples) and then send out a wi-fi signal throughout your home/business. You'll also notice a significant (!) increase in internet speed over your phone's hotspot plus the AirPort Extreme can handle up to 50 wireless devices connected to it at once.

  • Unless your phone offers an Ethernet-out connection (no phones do, to my knowledge), then no, it will not work.
