Android wifi репитер


Как использовать Android телефон или планшет как Wi-Fi репитер

27.01.2018  Разное

Не все знают, но существует возможность использования Android телефона или планшета в качестве Wi-Fi репитера (повторителя сигнала Wi-Fi), причем реализовать это можно и без root-доступа (хотя работает повтор сигнала не совсем так как в случае использования беспроводного маршрутизатора в режиме репитера).

Для чего это может потребоваться? Как и в случае с обычным репитером — для того, чтобы увеличить зону охвата Wi-Fi роутера или, например, если между маршрутизатором и конечным устройством есть железобетонная стена, «завернуть сигнал за угол».

Включение репитера Wi-Fi на Android

Стандартных средств для того, чтобы использовать андроид устройство как репитер нет, однако есть сторонние приложения, которые позволяют это реализовать.

NetShare

Первое из приложений, позволяющих включить режим репитера на Android — бесплатная NetShare от EveryoneIsAware. Использование программы выглядит следующим образом.

  1. После загрузки и установки приложения просто запустите его и нажмите кнопку «Start sharing».
  2. В NetShare вы увидите SSID (имя сети Wi-Fi) и пароль (Password), которые следует использовать для подключения с компьютера, ноутбука или другого устройства (т.е. Android «принимает» Интернет от роутера и передает уже в рамках сети под другим именем). 
  3. Подключитесь к точке доступа с конечного устройства. 
  4. Помимо подключения к точке доступа, на конечном устройстве, с которого выполняется подключение, необходимо включить доступ через прокси-сервер и указать IP-адрес и порт, указанные в приложении.

Для того, чтобы настроить прокси-сервер в Windows 10, 8 или Windows 7, используйте следующие шаги:

  1. Зайдите в Панель управления и выберите пункт «Свойства браузера».
  2. В свойствах браузера перейдите на вкладку «Подключения» и нажмите кнопку «Настройка сети».
  3. Снимите отметку «Автоматическое определение параметров» (если она установлена), а в разделе «Прокси-сервер» укажите адрес сервера и порт из приложения NetShare. 

В Windows 10 настроить прокси сервер можно и в Параметры — Сеть и интернет — Прокси — Настройка прокси вручную.

Готово, после этого подключение будет работать, а в качестве точки доступа будет использоваться ваше Android-устройство, получающее Интернет от роутера.

Скачать NetShare можно бесплатно из Play Маркет https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.everyoneisaware.netshare

Net Share общий модем

Второе приложение, уже от другого разработчика, работает по точно такому же принципу и даже называется почти так же, тоже Net Share и доступно для скачивания в Play Маркет здесь: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kha.prog.mikrotik

По некоторым отзывам, этот вариант создания репитера на Android устройстве работает в тех случаях, когда предыдущий отказывается работать нормально. Но у него есть важное ограничение: бесплатная версия позволяет держать сеть включенной только в течение 10 минут (а потом придется переподключаться). Требуется дольше и без разрывов— придется либо приобретать Pro версию, либо «снимать ограничения» (тоже платно, но дешевле, чем Pro версия).

Использование телефона Android в качестве ретранслятора Wi-Fi

Очень часто возникает вопрос, можно ли использовать Android в качестве ретранслятора Wi-Fi. Это весьма удобная функция, которая позволит расширить область покрытия беспроводной сети у себя дома. При этом без дополнительных финансовых затрат, так как смартфон или планшет на базе ОС Android есть практически в каждом доме. Если вас интересует как усилить Wi-Fi сигнал на Android, вся информация об этом здесь.

Как использовать смартфон как репитер Wi-Fi

Часто бывает, что уровень сигнала от роутера недостаточно сильный и на компьютере могут происходить обрывы. В таком случае нам необходим репитер (repeat англ. – повторять) – устройство, которое полностью дублирует радиосигнал, расширяя радиус действия маршрутизатора. Но такое приспособление нужно для начала купить. Что же делать, если под рукой нет репитера или еще одного роутера для организации моста?

В таком случае на помощь приходит ваш смартфон. Вы можете использовать телефон Android в качестве ретранслятора Wi-Fi. Но здесь имеются определенные ограничения: такие возможности есть не на всех смартфонах, и только на версиях Android 4+.

Более того, встроенных утилит нет, поэтому вам придется установить специальное приложение, которые позволит работать с Wi-Fi модулем и расширить его функциональные возможности.

Существует множество подобных программ, но не все они одинаково эффективны и стабильны. Наиболее широкий ряд функций имеет утилита FQRouter. Но для ее работы нужны Root права; в противном случае приложение не будет иметь тот набор возможностей, который вам необходим.

Установка приложения FQRouter

Еще стоит отметить, что ретранслятор Wi-Fi для Android будет работать не на каждом телефоне.

Помимо вышеуказанных требований, некоторые смартфоны оснащены беспроводными адаптерами, которые просто не поддерживают таких возможностей. И это уже аппаратная составляющая, которую невозможно изменить при помощи приложений.

Итак, для организации ретрансляции Wi-Fi выполните три шага:

  • Установка соответствующего приложение. Найти установочный файл вы сможете по этой ссылке. Программа называется FQRouter2. Здесь же краткое описание и опыт пользователей, связанный с работой этой программы.

  • После скачивания установочного файла скопируйте его в память гаджета и запустите.

  • Далее откройте утилиту.
  • Теперь осталось просто включить соответствующую функцию.

Приложение имеет простой интерфейс. В случае каких-либо трудностей просто внимательно прочитайте подсказку на экране.

Стоит отметить, что в GooglePlay вы сможете найти массу подобных приложений. Однако большинство из них вообще не работают, а те, что работают, позволяют только раздавать мобильный интернет.

Но эту функцию можно включить и без сторонних программ. Сделать же Wi-Fi ретранслятор из Android-устройства могут только единицы из предложенных утилит и, как правило, такие возможности имеются только в платных версиях приложений.

How to Use Your Android as a Wi-Fi Repeater

We all get frustrated when a Wi-Fi signal is nearby but is just out of our device's reach. Sometimes, your Wi-Fi router doesn’t cover your entire home and this is where Wi-Fi repeaters or Wi-Fi extenders come into play. You can either buy them separately or you can extend the Wi-Fi reach by using your Android device.

For those, who are unaware, a Wi-Fi repeater is used to extend the coverage area of your Wi-Fi network. It works by receiving your existing Wi-Fi signal, amplifying it and then transmitting the boosted signal.

The Wi-Fi repeater feature is not present in Android devices by default but some manufacturers are including it in their upcoming models. Samsung introduced the Wi-Fi sharing feature with the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge and it's also present in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Similarly, Huawei’s Honor 6X comes with this feature, dubbed as Wi-Fi Bridge.

So, how can you turn your smartphone into a Wi-Fi repeater? Well, there are two awesome apps for that. Let’s check them out in detail.

Other Stories: 5 Ways to Boost Your Wi-Fi Signal

1. NetShare-no-root-tethering

Step 1. Head to Google Play Store and download the NetShare-no-root-tethering app.

Step 2. When you open the app, you will see the Share internet connection tab. Click on the button to enable it. This basically repeats the Wi-Fi signal you are connected to.

Step 3. It must be noted that you cannot change the name or the password. The name of the new Wi-Fi network that is transmitted from your phone will be the Network Name displayed in the app. The Wi-Fi key will be that of the Network Password.

Step 4. Once you enter the password, try to connect to the Wi-Fi network. This will fail because you still need to enter the proxy settings.

Step 5. If you're using the Wi-Fi repeater on a Windows PC, you will have to change the proxy settings. Head to Control Panel > Network and Internet. Go to Internet Options and then Connections. Click on the LAN Setting option below.

Step 6. In the Address box, enter 192.168.49.1 and enter 8282 in the Port box.

Step 7. Save the settings and test your connection. You will now have access to the Wi-Fi network transmitted from your Android phone.

It must be noted that this app allows a limited 10-minute session for free. In order to use the full version, you will have to buy the app.

The full version is priced at Rs 650 and comes with other pro features such as graphs and no ads. You can also remove the 10-minute restriction by buying the app for Rs 520.

If you don’t want the additional features of this app, there's another one in the Play Store dubbed as Net Share. This also turns your Android phone into a Wi-Fi repeater. 

Let’s check out how Net Share works.

Important Note: The IP addresses and Port numbers mentioned for both the apps work for all Windows PC.

Step 1. Download the Net Share app.

Step 2. Once you open the app, tap the Start Sharing button at the bottom.

Step 3. Connect your device using the SSID and password mentioned in the app.

Step 4. In the case of a Windows PC, you'll have to head to Control Panel > Network and Internet. Go to Internet Options and then Connections. Click on the LAN Setting option below.

Step 5. Change the Address to 192.168.49.1 and enter 44355 in the Port box.

How to use Android as Wi-Fi repeater

There is a very common question: is it possible to use Android as a Wi-Fi repeater? It is quite convenient function that will extend the coverage area of a wireless network at home. At the same time there will be no additional financial costs because there are smartphones or tablets based on Android OS in almost every home.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi repeater

It often happens that the signal from the router is not strong enough and there may be disconnections on the PC. In this case, we need a repeater – a device that completely duplicates the radio signal, extending the range of the router. But we first need to buy such a device. What should we do if we don’t have a repeater or another router to organize the bridge?

In this case, your smartphone comes to help. You can use your Android phone as a Wi-Fi repeater. But there are certain limitations: such opportunities are not available on all smartphones; they only exist in Android versions 4+. Moreover, there are no built-in utilities, so you will have to install the special application that allows working with Wi-Fi module and extending its functionality.

There are many of these programs, but not all of them are equally effective and stable. The FG router utility has the most extensive range of functions. But this app needs the Root rights; otherwise it will not have the range of options that you need.

Installing the FG Router application

Also note that the Wi-Fi repeater for Android will not work on every phone. In addition to the above requirements, some smartphones are equipped with wireless adapters that do not support such capabilities. And this is a hardware component that cannot be changed with the application.

So, follow three steps to organize the Wi-Fi repeater:

  1. Installing the appropriate application. You can follow this link to find the installation on Google Play. The program is called FG Router 2. 

  2. Or you can download it at the following link: Fqrouter-latest. Here you can also find a brief description and users’ experience about working with this program. After downloading the setup file, copy it into the memory of the gadget and launch it.

  3. Next, open the utility.

  4. It now remains to just turn on the corresponding function.

IMPORTANT:The version on Google Play does not work on Android 4.4 or above unless your device has already been rooted.

fqrouter can make your mobile able to access restricted websites such as youtube/twitter from China. Besides that, it can also turn your mobile into a router sharing the free internet to other devices, if you have already [ROOT] your mobile.

The application has a simple interface. In case of any difficulty, just carefully read the message on the screen.

[Note] that you can find a lot of similar applications in the Google Play. However, most of them do not work, and those that operate only allow distributing mobile Internet. But this feature can be turned on without third-party programs. But only a few of the suggested tools can make a Wi-Fi repeater from Android devices and, as a rule, such opportunities are only available in the paid versions of applications.

How do I use Android as a WiFi repeater?

If you want to use your android device as wifi repeater / extender there can be many reasons like your laptop is not catching wifi signal where your phone catches it, or you want to use that wifi network on multiple device but you are restricted to only few devices, whatever the reasons be let’s cut it short.

There is no any successful app in the market for this purpose. Here I am sharing a very small and easy trick which will work on all android powered smartphones (no root required) to help you from all these problems.

So all you need is an Android Smartphone. And follow the steps given below:

Connect Your Android Device with any wifi network.

Now go to settings and then tethering and portable hotspot.

Here you will get two modes to share your wifi network i.e. via usb tethering or via Bluetooth tethering

you can connect the other device by any of these options.

Do Not Click On Wifi Tethering as This Will Turn Off The Bluetooth

P.S. : Inbuilt Bluetooth tethering option is only available in Android devices running Android version 4.0 or later.

If your android device is not that much upgraded then you can install any Bluetooth tethering app available in the market suitable for your android version like PdaNet+.

How to connect using bluetooth tethering:

First Of all Pair the android device with the another device via Bluetooth.

Now in tethering and portable hotspot enable Bluetooth tethering.

For Windows device:

Navigate to Devices and Printers

Select your android device and right click on it.

Select Connect Using >> Access Point

Done!!! Now You can use your Android Device’s wifi connection in your Windows laptop.

For Android powered devices:

On the other Android device select the name of your paired bluetooth android device with wifi connection.

Select Internet access in Profile Column.

Done!!! Now you can share the Wifi Internet connection on other device using Bluetooth Tethering. There are many drawbacks of this method:

Since Both Wifi and Bluetooth tethering are on at the same time it consumes lot of battery. So you can plug your device with charger and use.

Also Bluetooth Tethering does not provide as much of speed and Connectivity range as of Wifi Tethering.

Other way is via USB tethering, for this we just need to connect the android device with wifi connection to our PC using USB cable.

Then navigate to Tethering and Portable Hotspot and select USB tethering.

Done!!! Now you are sharing your Android Device’s wifi network to your PC using USB Tethering.

This method is also useful when your PC does not has the wi-fi adapter and you want to use the Wifi Internet connection.

There is an app in the market called fqrouter2 which supports wifi repeater option on very few rooted android device. You can give it a try if you want.

I hope you liked this post. Keep reading and comment if you have any question or problem.

Thankyou :)

How to Use Android Device as a WiFi Repeater

WiFi repeater or extender is used to amplify an existing WiFi signal and transmit the boosted signal as output. By doing so, you can easily extend the coverage area of your WiFi network. Usually, we need WiFi Repeater for the purpose, but if you have an Android smartphone, you can use a WiFi repeater app to turn it into a WiFi extender. NetShare is one of the best WiFi repeater apps for Android that doesn’t require root and works flawlessly.

Suppose you check in to a hotel and ask for the WiFi login credentials. On submitting your mobile number, they will assign a login id and password. The biggest drawback with this is you could use their WiFi services only on a single device that you have registered with them. What if you have more than one Android device and want to use the internet on both of them? The only workaround seems to discontinue their WiFi service, turn on your data pack and share your internet with the other device via portable hotspot feature. But what if you could continue to use your WiFi on your first device and at the same time let your second Android device enjoy its benefit. Well, this is indeed possible. In this guide, we will learn how we can make your phone work as an Android WiFi repeater for other devices.

Using Android as a WiFi Extender

By default, Android devices don’t provide the functionality of a WiFi repeater. This means that you cannot create two connections simultaneously. It is evident from the fact that if you have your WiFi turned on and then create a hotspot connection, then the WiFi would automatically get disconnected. This is where the NetShare no root tethering app comes in handy. It’s one of the best WiFi repeater apps for Android. It will allow your Android device to act as a WiFi Hotspot even when the device is itself connected to a WiFi Network. As evident from its name, the app doesn’t require a rooted device. So if you are quite impressed with this hack, then have a look at the 7 Android hacks that don’t require root.

In a nutshell, this is how the app works. It will create a new workgroup and subsequently a Virtual Private Network on the device connected to the internet. Now the other device, after entering the Proxy settings, will join the workgroup of the first device. This way the app is letting all the internet traffic of the second device pass through the first one. To try it out, follow the below instructions to make your Android device act as a WiFi repeater.

Configure the NetShare App

  1. Download and install the NetShare no root tethering app on your Android device. Make sure to install it on the device which is going to act as a Wi-Fi repeater.
  2. Now checkmark the text box next to Start WiFi Hotspot.
  3. Head over to the second Android device which requires internet connectivity.
  4. Install the same app on that device as well.
  5. Next, tap on the CONNECT option present at the top-right of the app, on your second Android device.
  6. At this instance, open your first device and toggle on the WPS switch.
  7. On your second device, you will get a VPN Connection request dialog. Tap on OK to grant permission.
  8. That’s it. You may now able to use the internet on your second device by routing the traffic through your first device.

So, that’s all about making your Android device work as a WiFi repeater using a WiFi repeater app. If you face any issues during the setup process, let us know in the comments.
