Ok lets talk abstract

PLACE A: Here's where we can find the main router so automatically here's where wi-fi is in action

Place B: Here's where i need wireless connection. There already is an ethernet cable from PLACE A modem to PLACE B PC(where im typing from) but no WI-FI.

What I need: Wi-Fi coverage in place B WITHOUT internet speed drop on my PC (Thought on disconnecting the ethernet cable from PC and connecting it to an AC with in build switch like https://www.zyxel.com/ro/ro/products_services/Wireless-N300-Access-Point-WAP3205-v3/ but 1000mbps instead of 300mbps OR a router configured as an AC https://www.tp-link.com/ro/home-networking/wifi-router/archer-c6/ if thats possible ofc.)

Problems that stop me from getting what i need: Lack of knowledge.

please answer fast i need to go to sleep but i can't because i have yet to find a solution even tho finding a solution tomorrow is just like finding it today
 
So what I gather is that A has the router and therefore the wifi. There's a cable from A to B where a PC is currently connected to B getting full speeds, correct?

And that you want to make it so B also has wifi, but without losing speed on the PC, correct?

Then your solution is dead simple--get a router at B, configure it as an access point, plug the cable into the switch on the router at B and plug in the PC at B in the the router at B and all should work well. :)

And the distance between A and B?

"What I need: Wi-Fi coverage in place B WITHOUT internet speed drop on my PC "
But, the laws of physics makes that tough.
30m.... 100 feet

Also let me clarify. I won't connect PC trough wi-fi, i will stil connect it through an ethernet cable from inbuilt switch from the access point ,does it drop in speed?

Access point with Lan and wireless, the one you linked will do.

Wireless and Lan signals between devices at point B. Internet access for whatever device, Lan or Wireless via the network cable from A.

More info is needed, Place A and B, are they in a single story house? Commercial metal building 3 floors apart? Exactly what laws of physics are you trying to beat?
