How Do WiFi Repeaters Impact My Phone's WiFi Connection?

Environment

Answer

WiFi repeaters typically act as an extension to a connection so there are multiple wifi signals acting like one. In lots of cases, this can help WiFi signal strength greatly; however, it can also cause confusion with the phone when it's trying to sort through the signals. 

Additional Notes

The error "Connected, No Internet" can sometimes happen because of WiFi Repeater confusion. You can test this by staying close to the router to see if the issue is resolved by the phone receiving only one WiFi signal.
