Hi;
I would like to extend the wifi reach w/ my present Netgear router (1). I have second Linksys router to connect to it. I connected II router via an Ethernet cable to first router. I see strong signal out of Linksys, on my laptop, but do not know how I can set it as client to Netgear router, so that I can use it as an AP. I would appreciate if you can provide me w/ the settings to do it.

Thanks;
Ravi

Netgear is "Primary", Linksys is "Secondary"?

-Notate the Primary's settings:  IP; Subnet; Channel
-Reset Secondary to Factory
-Connect Secondary to PC (not network) and access 192.168.1.1 (or factory default address)
-Disable DHCP Server
-Set new SSID and Password (this can be the same as the Primary IF they are far enough apart that the signals due not cross.
-Set IP to something ON your Primary's network (as found in Step 1)
-Primary should be connected to modem through WAN
-Link Secondary to Primary from LAN to LAN
