Can the Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router be used strictly as an Access Point to boost the signal around the house?
Posted on 2008-11-04
I am considering buying a Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router, and wanted to know if I can use it strictly as an access point so that I can improve signal strength throughout the house, or do I have to purchase an Access Point device specifically. The main router that I have now is a Netgear MIMO. From what I understand, an Access Point does NOT need to be physically wired to the main router in order to broadcast an internet signal -- please correct me if this is false -- because the whole point for me is to bypass running wires throughout the house.
Thank you for your input.
