You can use more than one repeater at a time at the same place. In the case of a repeater it is important to a know that The Chosen repeater is compatible with your router; otherwise your money spent on the repeater will be worthless.

5. Revise your expectations

It is a good time to revise your expectation and know whether you should, or you are actually happy with the current WiFi connection or not.
