Wifi Repeater amplify the wifi signal from place you getting decent signal to boost it to place where you getting zero signal. Remember to always place your wifi repeater at edge of the area wherever you get ok signal from existing wifi device. If you place it at place where you getting zero signal then wifi repeater won’t be able to repeat the signal.
For setup of your wifi repeater one can use same name as old wifi network name or give it a brand new name. Most wifi range extenders automatically add ext to old wifi network name.
Speed reduction can vary a lot and in some case even zero. All depends on your isp speed, existing wifi signal power, repeater itself, type of network getting repeated(2.4ghz or 5ghz), neighboring network interference, distance between two devices etc.
