I'm trying to add to my existing network, so I can use Xbox Live in another part of my house, but I'm not sure what changes I need to make.

Currently, I have a Netgear DG834GT, which my ADSL connects to. It works fine and I can access the internet using my PC/laptop or Xbox360. The wireless network doesn't reach the back of the house, where I want to put the Xbox, so I have an ethernet cable going to that part of the house.

I've plugged the cable into a Netgear DG834G wifi router so I'm broadcasting in that part of the house and want to connect to the internet wirelessly (the cable's not in a convenient location), but it's not working.

Security wise, both routers are set up the same - if either one is at the 'entry' point for the ADSL, they work correctly as wireless access points.
IP addresses are currently not set as static - is this something I need to do?

Can anyone give me any advice on the easiest way to achieve this?
