I have a single access point at home.  It's a Linksys WRT54G running DD-WRT.  In some area of the lower level of my house I can't get a signal.  I have another Linksys WRT54G currently running the stock Linksys firmware.  (I'm open to flashing it to DD-WRT if necessary)

What is the best way for me to get a stronger signal in the lower level?

I'd ideally like to setup the second WRT54G as a repeater on the same SSID.  So my devices just think there's a single wireless network and get a good signal anywhere in the house.  I'm not sure if that's possible though.

Can you recommend the best way for me to get a good strong signal anywhere in the house, including specific settings on the second router \ AP.  Thanks!
