In this article we will show you a quick guide, thanks to which you can activate a very interesting function in your smartphone. This feature can improve the reach of your Wi-Fi so that you can use it as efficiently as possible.
Turn your smartphone into a Wi-Fi extender
If you are at least a little familiar with technology, specifically Wi-Fi, you have certainly noticed the term "Wi-Fi extender" or "Wi-Fi signal extender" in your life. In short, these are devices that are designed to extend the Wi-Fi signal.
Thanks to the Android operating system, you can just turn your smartphone into such a signal extender. But first, you need to unlock the hidden developer settings. You can do this by clicking the "MIUI Version" button in the smartphone settings several times.
In the end, all you have to do is go to the "Additional settings" section, click on "Developer Options" at the bottom and turn on the "Run Wi-Fi coverage extension using a hotspot".
This feature is to some extent similar to a classic mobile hotspot. After turning on the above feature, you can still use the well-known Wi-Fi hotspot, but its quality may be slightly better.
