    Can I connect my ADSl Wireless Router to another wirless router wirelessly

    I have a Netgear DG834G wirless ADSL router which my main home PC is connected to. I've also got a Netgear MR814 wireless router which I want to connect wirelessly to the first one so that I can then connect my PS2 and future wthernet enabled TV/video/media playes ect. Is this possible with thease to types of routers or do I need to get the Netgear WGE111 Wireless 54Mbps Game Adapter which only has the one cat5 port on it.

    You usually need to set up each wireless acess point or router up using an ethernet connection first.
    You'll need them in infustructure mode and have to set the SSID for each device to be the same.
    When powering up the devices, turn on the DG834G first then the MR814.
    Other than that I'm not too sure, but it'll give you a place to start.

    I use a billion router (wired) connected to a motorolla access point and then various USB 802.11g dongles.

    played about trying to setup the two routers two connect wirlessly but failed. I was told I had to disable DHCP on the second router and set both SSID the same then i gave my laptop a IP address in the range of the address the first router assigned via DHCP and tried pinging the first router but not dice.

    I've never had any luck specifying an IP address and getting the PC to connect. You also usualy need to have DHCP enabled, but I'm not a network guru, there may be a way to do it.

    Lightbulb D-Link option

    I got here while looking for a similar solution to connect a D-Link router to another one and extend the network that way. Got it hooked up in minutes without even reading full thread, here's how:

    1. Plugged a patch cable into LAN connections of each router
    2. Changed the IP address of the secondary rooter to 192.168.1.2
    3. Disabled dhcp server on the secondary rooter

    That's it,
    I can now connect to eithr router and be able to access the internet without problems. The only condition for the networked computers to be visible to each other is that they all need to be connected to the same gateway router.

    Hope this helps.
