Addition of router to existing wireless network

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I have a few computers with wired networking adapters that I would like to have folding for OCN. Due to space restrictions, I am not able to place these systems near my wireless router to hook them up with cables. Verizon sent me a new wireless router when I renewed my dsl contract, which is now filling the space of my Netgear router. Thus I have an unused Netgear WGR614 wireless router. I was hoping to connect the unused computers to the netgear router with wired connections and have the Netgear router connect to the Verizon router wirelessly. The distance between the would be location of the Netgear router and the location of the Verizon router is far longer than I would like to run a cat5 cable. If I could pull this off, I would not need to purchase wireless networking adapters for computers that I would have no other use for other than folding... I was wondering if this was possible, and if so, could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
D&C

I hope you find the below link useful.

Using WPN824, WGR614, or WGT624 Routers as an Access Point

Be sure to change the IP address of the wireless router to one that fits your network manually. This should come under the LAN IP Setup option. Don't bother about the Internet IP Address under Basic Settings because that's to do with the port that you're not going to use.

Thanks for the link. After further review, what I wish to accomplish is knowns as network bridging, and is not supported by my router.
