I Repeat - Repeaters

As the name implies, repeaters are simple devices that boost a signal’s ability to travel farther and faster on the network (because it is repeating the signal). You will need to buy a repeater when the total length of a segment of your network cabling is larger than the maximum for your cable type. For instance, 10Base2 coaxial has a maximum length of 185 meters, and 10/10BaseT twisted pair has a maximum length of 100 meters.
