Ok I live in a two story house and my room is on the 2nd floor and my dads office is downstairs on the other side of the house. The router is downstairs in my dad's office and it is a WRT54G. I have another wireless router that is the exact model and I have a Dynex wireless card in my computer too. I get about 2 bars with just the wireless card, which is better than the Linksys card I had before this one. I was just wondering if it was possible to have my spare router hooked up to my computer and the other router to where I can have better connection to the internet from up here. If it's not possible I'm just going to have to buy a wireless n router cause I can't stand the speed I'm getting right now.

Try this site I think one of the modes will work. I think repeater bridge is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
