I have two Linksys WRT54GS wireless routers. One is v.1.1, the other, v.2.0. I am receiving poor wireless transmission in certain parts of my home and I would like to use one of the rouers as a range expander. Apparenty, at one time, I could go into the settings window and choose "wireless repeater" in the "AP screen mode." Problem is, I can't find such an option.

Is there a way to use my second wireless router as a range expander? If so, how do I do this.
(Note: Only one router is currently in use.)

Thank you.
