ok ill try explain this best i can.

what i have is a dsl modem bridged to my linkstys router which is serving a few pc's. what i want to do is take my 2wire and make it so it is an access point for the other side of my house.

so the 2wire would get the wireless from the linksys then allow what ever is connected to it to get to the internet.

is that something that can be done.

I understand what you want to do but the info can't flow that way: Your 2Wire makes the connection to the DSL and the Linksys does the routing. You can't then have the 2Wire do wireless. So you'll need to reverse it. Turn on the DHCP and wireless on the 2Wire and turn off the DHCP on the Linksys. Also if you have the Linksys set up to make a PPPoE connection for you(basically entering your user name and PW to connect to DSL for you) you might have to change that back to the 2Wire..but not 100% sure on that.

Make sense?

What is the model number of the 2Wire and Linksys router?

Because I was assuming that the Linksys isn't a wireless router. Am I wrong for that assumption? If you are talking about connecting the 2Wire to the Linksys via wireless connection, I don't believe those two pieces of equipment have that ability.

If the linksys router is a wireless router, you can place them on opposite sides of your house wired together and use the wireless of the Linksys.

If the Linksys isn't a wireless router, then you need to turn the Linksys into a switch by turning off the DHCP server and turning on the 2Wire DHCP and its wireless capability.

This site will explain what you need to do. But as you will read, its not going to work with the 2Wire and Linksys.
