Theoretical ethernet broadcaster device

If I connected an ethernet cable from my bt router, what device would take that ethernet input and broadcast it as a wifi signal in a new place?

A wireless access point, or a spare router used as a WAP.

You would need to buy a separate wireless access point like the TP- Link TL-WA801ND and connect it to a spare Ethernet port on the home hub, once its been configured. It works very well, with a good wireless range. Make sure you configure it correctly.
