answer 1
It must be within about 6m of the router and receiving machine. It has trouble getting through walls and ceilings.

not any room, just any room that can receive a decent enough wifi signal for this range extender to repeat out again.

You CANNOT connect this to your router by cable - it must be a Wi-Fi connection. You can (in theory) connect another device to this by cable - if the extender happens to be working at the time.

It connects to your current modem/router via WiFi, but has ethernet ports for you to connect other devices to it.

But yes the connection to the network source is through WiFi.

Question
Can multiple range extenders be run from one WiFi router?
I have a router covering several large indoor areas, but there are blind spots, I would like to cover with range extenders, as there are no Ethernet connectors in those areas.
Am I limited to just one extender, or are they configurable, to allow each to transmit on a different channel?
