Hello Everyone,

I have a Netgear DGN 2200 router that I use at home for internet access. My pc is connected through ethernet cable and other devices uses the wifi.

In my room the wifi is signal is not strong so I got another simple wireless router (Netgear WRN612 wifi router). Since a ethernet cable comes to my room, I intend to connect 1 end of cable (that comes from my main router) to the new router, other end to my pc and configure settings so my pc can access internet (ethernet) and I can enable wifi so that network range also gets extended.

I am struggling to configure the router. I will be glad if anyone can help me.

Thanks a lot buddy :)


Turning the dhcp off and configuring the ip did the trick.
