One needs a wireless network extender when one decides to go to an area where their home phone or internet service is unable to be used. For instance, if one were to go outside and walk around, one would be able to do so if they had a wireless network extender.

How can you connect 2 displays wireless from about seventy feet away from a computer?

There are a number of wireless HDMI extenders available and these can be used to send a DVI signal from one point to another. There are fewer wireless VGA extenders but they can be found. Beware of cheap wireless systems. Seventy feet is a considerable distance to cover and the low cost wireless extenders may prove noisy or unreliable. If a computer can be attached to each display, then a wireless network can be used to replicate the image from a master computer. Wireless networks are often more reliable than low cost video senders but they will need more set up than video senders.
