Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to a numbered output port on the wired router, and connect the other end to the uplink port on the wireless Linksys router. The port is labeled "Uplink" on most Linksys routers, and can be found to the right of the other Ethernet ports.

Turn both routers on. Turn on a computer with wireless capability and connect to the new wireless network. By default, Linksys routers use "Linksys" as the network name.

Open a web browser and type " Enter your user name and password to continue. If you have not set up the router with a user account, leave the user name field blank and enter "admin" as the password. Keeping DHCP enabled will cause network conflicts between the two routers. Turn on any computers connected to the wired router and note their IP addresses.

I know that the "server" router has to be wired to a broadband internet modem. But when you set the other router as a wireless bridge, does it's information just get picked up by the first router or is there something that needs to be plugged into the WAP port of the bridge router?

My intention is to connect a computer to the first router by wire and use the second to bridge components in another room of the house xbox, Tivo, possibly a second computer. I think that I am doing the best, and most cost effective, thing using the two routers, but I may be wrong. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I want to connect the xbox, tivo and whatever else by wire to the bridge router. If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended. Try post 17 of our forum sticky. My problem is that I want to use two wireless routers and do not want to tether them to each other physically.

I want to know if there's a way for them to connect to each other wirelessly using the second router as a bridge to extend the wireless network to another room. I then want to use that router to hook up two or three components with a wire to be able to share the internet connection. Is it possible with these means or do I have to get a switch, hub, access point, etc.? I did see that. Here I used a wifi bridge. Then a WGPS on the other end.

I used bridges for bridges, routers for routers in other words. But why would the second wifi router have to be in that other room at all? I only needed to use post 17's setup to get the second wifi router closer so the machines there could get a solid wifi connection. I am covering a distance annoying enough that running a wire between the two would just plain bug me. Much cheaper option to actually buying a bridge already checked. With the updated firmware, you have many more options, it optimizes the router, and makes the interface more user friendly.

I believe you can even increase the output from the firmware. Much cheaper than a bridge and any of the decent N-routers I looked at. Found mixed reviews but the majority were more positive than not. My whole reason for doing it this way is so that I can carry the internet to the other room at other end of house and connect the components with wires to the router. This way I don't have to have a wireless transmitter on everything that I want to connect and I only have to configure the router to those devices. I paid all of 25 bucks for my bridge units so since you are making your own system why not go ahead?

Most say that they're still good even though they are now owned by Cisco but others say the opposite.

The documentation is lousy so people that want to use it as a bridge will be confused and return it. Their loss is my gain. The trick is to use the setup software and plow ahead as if we were going to use the printer server feature. The first part of the setup covers the bridge setup and when we begin the printer server setup we just bail out at that point.

Your plan is fine too, just no one is giving good support today.
