ok so i have a wifi antenna on my computer i am picking up a signal with but i have other devices that cant pick up the signal because they are too far or too weak to pick it up, so i bought a wireless g ap4 , now it has the options of setting it up a few different ways and i am not sure what i need to do my goal is to get the signal my computer is picking up and send it to my other devices.
here are the setup methods it offers:
router access point/ the it says in the unlikely event you need to use it as a repeater enter the Mac addresses of access points you are communicating with.
^is the above what i need to extend the wireless access point signal i am receiving?

then it has the option of setting up a wireless isp which i think may work but i dont know if this would strengthen my connection and it may be too weak still for my devices to work well.

You can chain separate wireless routers if both models support WDS (wireless distribution) and this will improve your reach.

Download the full user manual(s) from the manufacturer website(s).
