    My understanding of an indoor (home use) repeater is to connect an Antenna outside which runs into the home connected to the repeater then another antenna which boosts the signal and broadcasts indoors..

    But why? Why not just take a cable from the Antenna to the device(s) that need it? would this not be a better way? eg, WIFI, 3G, WIMAX (Data frequencies)

    If you only need to send the signal to one device that sits in one place you wouldn't need the repeater, they assume you're wanting to operate multiple devices or have the capability to move them around.
