Wired Booster as wireless booster

I am not sure how this all works but even with this limited info im sure somebody can help. I have a pair of boosters one big one small. The big is connected to the router and the small is connected to the my pc (ethernet via the mains). I want to use the boosters as a wirless booster, can I, remove the ethernet cable from my pc to small one. And just connect the pc to the small one via wifi, since the booster does both wireless and wired boosting.

The small one needs to stay connected to the hub to work.

The larger one will emit a wifi signal and you can use the Ethernet port on it as well to provide a wired connection.

Do they look like this?

The smaller one should be plugged into the HUB and the larger one should be next to the devices that require wireless/wired in a 'blackspot' area.

Plug the small one into the HUB and the mains.

Plug the large one into the mains where the PC is. You can then connect the PC, or other devices, via wireless OR wired connection.

Re: Wired Booster as wireless booster

They look like that. When you say hub do u mean my wifi box/router? And just to clarify the small one is right next to the "hub" via ethernet. and the big one wherever i want to boost the signal and it just needs to be in the wall, no wires?

Correct. It sounds like you have them the other way round currently which is incorrect.
