I have to SOHO routers with wireless AP ... one router is connected to modem and 2nd router is connected about 25 feet away with long ethernet cable.  This way I can get wi fi signal at longer distances...

Is there a way to get signal from 1st router to 2nd router wireless?  Pretty much take away the long ethernet cable from the picture...

Thanks...

The way you have it is the best way for speed. If you use a wifi bridge and rebroadcast or use a repeater you slow things down. For Internet access you won't notice much but copying from a laptop over a repeater to a wired desktop will definitely be slower than with your current setup.

Whether or not those two can do it by themselves depends on what brand/model/version they are.
