Hey, i now have my xbox and pc in a room down the backyard. I am getting low wifi with no very good speed.

I am on a budget so i bought a 50 metre ethernet cable cat5e.
My dad and i are going to tie it around the backyard, i will then have a spare router i used to use in my back room, where it will be connected too. The spare router will go out to the xbox and the pc.

The thing is... i am not sure how to set this up.

I changed the dlink's (spare router) ip to 192.168.0.2 instead of 1, what else must i do?

Can someone help me set this up as i am not very knowledgeable in the networking area.
Details
Modem/Router = Telstra Bigpond Netgear cdg24n v2

Spare router that will be in backroom = Dlink DIR-300

Turn off DHCP and NAT in the Dlink. Then either switch the Dlink mode to router(instead of gateway) plug the ethernet cable into the LAN conection on the DLink. That should do it.

Yes, it seems to be working. I use free zonealarm on all my systems. I haven't tried with zonealarm activated. Do i need to configure it?

Verify that the Telestra modem/router is set up to do NAT and DHCP. Also verify all computers are set to recieve DHCP.

edit - Make sure the D link router is set up with an address based on the same IP range/subnet as the Telestra.
