Looks like you're trying to extend wifi.

Whether you use a cable or not is going to depend on the extender and whether or not you have a cable (or can pull one) to where you need your extender to sit.

Most extenders are made to connect wirelessly to your existing wifi network. As to how to configure it, read the manual. If that isn't clear enough, contact the manufacturer's support people and ask them to help.

"WIFI is connected at the back of my PC"
The phone cable goes into the router.

If you want to use ethernet ( cable ), which is faster than wifi, one end goes into the router, the other into the computer.

Not sure what you are asking.
Maybe this could clear some confusion:

Internet >> Router >> client devices

The Router >> client devices end of things can be wireless or wired connections

A wired connection will outperform a wireless connection so if you're into gaming, you'll want your gaming PC connected with a network cable to the router
