This may be a really ill-informed question: we have poor wifi reception at one end of the house, but have a spare Ethernet port there, as well as two Ethernet-connected desktop computers. Portable devices (iPads, mobiles, etc.) struggle to get good wifi reception there. Rather than buy a mesh system or a wifi extender or a second router, is it possible to connect something like the Telstra 4GX USB + Wi-Fi Plus directly to a computer (or to an Ethernet port), and then connect it to our existing broadband network to effectively mirror our wifi signal at that end of the house? Sounds too good to be true, so any alternative solutions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks

No. The 4GX USB +Wifi Plus is not designed to work that way.
A second router or a mesh system is the way to go .
No that would not work. If you have an old spare modem or WiFi router you could set that up as WiFi access point. The only other option that doesn't require the purchase off extra hardware is to enable hotspot function on one of the PC and connect it's Ethernet port to the LAN cable. All windows 10 PCs with a WiFi adapter have this function built into the operating system.
