Connecting Belkin Wireless Router to Netgear Wireless Router
Posted on 2010-01-06
I'm looking to connect two wireless routers together, wirelessly. Basically we have our modem connected to the main router, the Netgear, and I have a room upstairs I where I want to hookup my other wireless router, the Belkin. I don't have the ability to connect them via a LAN cable. I could use wireless just on my computers, but I have a desktop I want to wire to my second router upstairs and don't want to have to buy an additional card to connect the desktop to the Netgear downstairs. So basically I want to use my belkin as a wireless hub, i really don't care where the security is, as long as one of them can keep my wireless connection secure.
Netgear Model: Netgear Advanced Cable Modem Gateway CGD24G (is my main Router)
Belkin Model: Belkin N1 Wireless Router (N1 Mimo) F5D8231-4 (this will be 'hopefully' the secondary)
I'm a programmer not a network engineer, lol this is driving me nuts! Hopefully its possible, I mean they're both recent models so I'm hoping they have the capability to do what I want.
