I have a Wireless D-Link DI 524 router that is connected to an iDirect 3000 series Modem running in the first block in our office, we have extended our office to a near by block which is around 70-80 meters away from the main building were the wireless access point is located, we bought a new Linksys wireless G broudband router, that I will would like to extend the connection to the next room with it,
How can I go about the configuration of the of the second router in the next block, in order to improve on the signal strength in the next building?

I believe you would have to hardwire the 2nd Router into the 1st router and then set up a 2nd wireless network from the 2nd Router for the computers to conenct to.

You wouldnt be able to connect the two routers wirelessly so a decent length of ethernet cable is needed to do the job :thumbsup:
