I've got 4 levels. Router is on the main floor and covers the basement and 2nd floor but can't reach the 3rd floor. By putting the repeater on the 2nd floor (where the wifi signal is good) it creates a second wifi zone that reaches the 3rd floor (where the wifi signal used to be bad).
This puppy is a dream, provides fantastic coverage where the Fios router simply couldn't. Saves me $50 a month which is what Fios would have charged me to extend my coverage up there.
