Is this possible? I have a comcast wireless router in my living room, and I have an old pc up and running in a bedroom. I have a router for the bedroom, but it has no cable in, it just has RJ45 type ports. No "cable from the wall" port, to screw the internet cable into.

 

My question is, is it possible to link up with the comcast router wirelessly with the bedroom router, and use the internet connection in the bedroom through it?

 

Does that make sense?

you want the wireless router in your room to receive a wireless signal from your router in the living room?

Wireless bridge will do that. I have it setup in my place. It's not difficult to setup either. You can do it to have both on the same subnet or different a subnet.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif

You will not be able to do this with a regular wireless router unless there is a dd-wrt firmware for this router that contains this function.
