linking routers together?

Router "noob" here.

We have a NETGEAR wireless router in our bedroom.

We have a BELKIN wireless router in the kitchen

Our daughter's computer is downstairs with a wireless PCI NIC.


What I want to do is link or "bridge" the routers.

DAUGHTER PC -->  BELKIN  -->  NETGEAR --> internet


How is this done?  Can this be done?

Note: The channel must be identical on both the router and the access point.

Note: The WDS feature is not completely specified in IEEE or Wifi standards. Therefore interoperability between 802.11 products of different vendors is not guaranteed.


Hope this will help you. Tell me if is working.

If bridge connection is not supported by the belkin router you should make an firmware update from here:
