Lost wireless signal on wireless router

Q: Lost wireless signal on wireless router

I have an older ativa router don't know the model number right off but it has worked fine and I have 4 hardwired computers wired in and on occasion i use my netbook for a wireless connection. I haven't used it in a few weeks and now it won't work. nothing has been changed on any computer. I can sometimes get a connection but it show packages sent but none received and wont work. do you think the wireless part of the router went bad and how do I know how to check. Please help need the wireless service for my netbook and my new laptop which would not pick up the signal either and i have no password or restrictions on it . They normally just pick it up and work. Please help if you know what i need to do.

Got a wierd problem here.

Got a Zyxel wireless modem router. The wireless part works perfect but when I plug in a RJ-45 (ethernet cable) into on of the ports and then into the network card on a desktop computer - its gets no internet. I can login to the router from the desktop fine.

I thought this was the computer it-self.

So I got a laptop, and plugged the same cable into it - still no internet connection.
(The cable was replaced with another RJ-45 - so it is not the cable - this problem is baffling me)

Any ideas anyone?

I have a Netgear WGR614 v6 wireless router and a Westell VersaLink Model 327W modem/wireless router. What I want to do is use one of them to pick up signal from the other and use it as a wired router since my comps don't have wireless cards in them. Basically I would be using one of them as the wireless card and running ethernet cable to the comps from there. Is this possible, and if so how? I'm doing this because the connection point in the house is too far from where I want to put my computer. I am **not** trying to steal someone elses signal.

Very precise step-by-step instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like your wireless function has been turned off, have you checked the "Wireless" section of your routers setup page? Another possibility is that you have some kind of interference (another router, wireless phone, microwave oven etc.)

I need help with getting internet to wireless router.
Here's the setup:
Cable internet to modem. Modem to desktop computer running vista via usb cable.
Ethernet cable from modem to WAN port of netgear n600 wndr-3400 v1.
Netgear LAN port to xbox 360. Netgear wireless to kindle.

I had the desktop and modem working alone for years just fine. Then I added the router and everything else and all that worked great for a couple of years. Then I realized somebody was using my wireless so I tried adding a password using Everything was screwed up. Then a tech told me to factory reset my router; then everything was worse.
I finally got internet to my computer. The wireless signal is excellent. I just can't get internet to the router. Please help.

A:internet to modem, no internet to wireless router, wireless signal good

do another factory reset and a powercycle

How to power cycle

“power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

I am an employee of Orange County in California.
We have reecently purchased and set up 25 wireless stations in one room and 13 in another room nearby with 2 Rangemax routers and 2 seperate Wireless networks with Static IPs for each of the workstations.
I keep losing connectivity on various PCs, and often get a Blue Screen of death when trying to re-establish the connection.
We have a training environment and need solid connectivity.
Please help, ASAP.

A:Wireless signal lost

The channels used by the two routers differ by at least 5?

Any 2.4Ghz cordless phones (they interfere)?

If you need solid connectivity you need ethernet. 25 computers connected wirelessly to one network are going to be a constant challenge.

I'm looking for ideas on how to re-connect my home wireless signal to my computer. The wireless signal is strong and the other computers in my house will connect with no issues. My computer connected with no problems to my wireless signal at work. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Lenovo Idea Pad Win7 PC. The computer was connecting yesterday and then was shut down. The next time I got on, ,it wouldn't connect. I've tried re-establishing the network as a new network, but it says the network already exists. The profile is the same as our other computers and nothing has been changed there. When I disconnect from the wireless signal and ask to re-connect it says that the it is trying to connect, but can't make the connection. I'm looking for any way to re-build the profile so it will connect and work again.

With my two wireless routers, is it possible to use the one hooked up to the modem to beam the wireless signal to another wireless router that's plugged in elsewhere in the house? Then the second router would spread the signal to weak spots in the house. Can this be done?

If not, if I'm looking for better coverage in the house is it a better idea to have the router in the basement or on the second story?

You cannot convert a signal from another router. The router needs to connect to a modem which in turn has to connect to a phone line with DSL service.

A:Having trouble getting a wireless signal from my router...

You need to pay for multiple public IP addresses, or a broadband router to connect to your modem, or replace the modem with a cable modem/router combo.

If you decide to add public IP addresses (the worst choice, if your ISP even provides them) you can then configure the Actiontec Q1000 DSL modem/router as an ethernet switch and wireless access point.

A:help no signal conencting to wireless router

There are so many things that could have gone wrong with the unit that it is hard to give an easy diagnosis. It could be an infestation... a firewall change, a driver failure.
First thing I would do is totally remove the current wireless software, then remove all vestiges with RegClean or other registry software.
Then reboot, and install ALL the updates that Microsoft offers in Microsoft Updates or Windows Updates.
Then reboot, and use your wireless disc to reinstall the wireless software.... and the firmware downloads from the website.... reading everything you can find on the software for the version of devices you are installing.

A:Router/wireless modem signal

As long as the data throughput is good,the signal strength
is not that big of a deal.
It is probably that the metal shielding inside the laptop is
blocking the signal somewhat depending on what
direction it is pointing.
Wiring in the house can also block the signal somewhat.
Had the same problem with another laptop.
No signal one direction,turn it 90 degrees and good signal.
Using the external adapter shouldn't be a problem,as the
settings and password are stored on the laptop.
If someone else tried to use the adapter,they would have
to install drivers and would need to know your security settings
to access your network.

A:Which router should I get for a stronger signal & help with laptop wireless

You will never find routers listed by distance (feet, yards, meters, etc). They use dBm to show the amount of power used to transmit the signal. Signal strength all depends on the line of sight, objects in the way, and other variables. Higher dBm is better if you are looking for maximum distance.

As far as laptops, they generally come with built in wireless NICs. You are talking about an actual express card that you plug directly into the laptop. Here is an example of an expresscard expansion slot:

The different channels on the router won't affect the signal what so ever. The different channels are used if you are in a suburban area with many wireless networks nearby or anywhere else with many networks in close proximity.

The only thing that comes to mind is that either your built in NIC is bad or you need a better one.

I am using model BEFW11S4 wireless router purchased in 2003. It has been working flawlessly until yesterday when it stopped transmitting the "RF" or wireless signal to my other desktop and laptop computers.

The "host" computer which is plugged directly into the Linksys wireless router through one of four ethernet ports in the back is working properly. The source is AT & T DSL. I have tried to do a complete restart of the DSL modem, the router (including the "reset" button), turning the power off and on, but the wireless signal seems to have disappeared.

Any suggestions on how I can determine what the problem is or get the wireless part of the router to function again?

The picture will show you the problem.

A:Decreasing Laptop wireless signal to router

do you have your own router? if so, change the channel it broadcasts on. the channel frequencies overlap a bit, so get as far away by channel number as possible from the others. xirrus has a sidebar gadget that will show all the channels in use in your vicinity. the screenshot attached shows my router at top set on channel 1, with the others in the neighbourhood on 4 and 11, i could have set it to 7 or 8 as well, keeping 2 channel numbers in between me and the others. i didn't as there is a weak one on 7 that shows occasionally.

if you are using a router that you cannot change the channel of, ie. at school or work, there may be an 'advanced' property for your adapter, ie. 'smartscan', or 802.11h that you can change. the examples you attached show a strong signal quality but the speed drops as you note. most systems negotiate the speed down to a level that is acceptable in terms of errors, but they tend not to negotiate back up again & a reboot may be needed. if you are sharing a router, the more active connections, the slower your speed will be as the speed is shared out by dividing it up.

Hi guys,

I have a very annoying problem. I am on a wireless network. We're getting the connection from a floor below, usually the signal is pretty good. I can always connect to the router, but once in awhile, it just won't give me internet access. Like right now for example...I'm using my roommate's computer which sits on the same wall as my computer, just on the other side. Yet for some reason, I can't access the internet. It shows me as connected in the network connections though.

Any idea where to start here? It is driving me absolutely nuts!

The subject router has lost the RF output signal. Some observations:
My desktop PC cabled to router works OK.
My laptop sees other wireless networks in the area but not my router.
My wifi sniffer/locator does not detect a signal, even when I hold it next to the router.
I've tried disconnecting the power to the cable modem and router for 30 sec's, and restart modem/router, without success.
Led lights on both the router and modem look normal.

Any thoughts? Is this router dead?

I've had the Netgear WNR 2000 Router for a year and a half. It always worked pretty well but now it loses a wireless signal almost on a daily basis. I have to turn off the router only for about 15 seconds and turn on again to regain signal. Is it dying?

I have Windows 7, my wife has an XP computer. Using WEP encryption. Any ideas?


A:Netgear WNR 2000 Router losing wireless signal daily

Go to the Netgear website and see if there are any firmware updates. Usually the updates solve issues like these. If not, you are best to call Netgear customer service and see if there are any other reports of this happening. Usually people will call Netgear when things like this occur. They will sometimes be able to tell you the exact reason why its doing this. If these two fail, then come back here, and we will see what we can do.

Good luck,

ASUS PCE-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 150/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit/128-bit WEP, TKIP, and AES WI-Fi alliance WPA, WPA2 -

I randomly pick the above. It has 2 antenna. Is this card gives a better signal than a motherboard that has an embedded Wifi module?

because the situation I was at today is, these folks has a toshiba all in 1, which comes with an embedded wifi module in that All in 1. The wireless router/Cable modem is at the basement, and some times they lost signal.

So I'm thinking of something like Linksys WRT1900AC that has 4 antenna, and perhaps source out a signal booster. But if that does not work, it would be time to get a real PC that c/w PCI wireless card.

Do you guys think there is a sizeable gain on signal strength on these PCI wireless card vs. embedded Wifi module on motherboard?

A:Does PCI wireless card has better signal than embedded wireless module inside PC

I would try power over Ethernet. But if you must use wifi the all in one probably has its antenna around the screen. I would look at range entenders. They are getting cheap where they just act as an access point and will allow you to extend their coverage

Previous hardware set up:
IDSL Modem/Router
2 local PC's (one XP, one 2000Pro), each connected via Ethernet directly to router. Worked fine.

Added a Netgear wireless router MR814 to handle daughter's new laptop with wireless connection. Wireless is also connected to Modem/router LAN.

Laptop connects fine wireless or wired, however neither wired machine can connect to the internet! Spent countless hours with Covad Tech Support. Since we can connect laptop, their circuit/modem/router appears fine. No one can explain loss of connectivity with wired machines. We know the cables are good, which points to the network cards - however what are the odds two network connections (integrated in each desktop PC) go bad simultaneously? Slim and none is my guess but we're open to ideas.

A:Added wireless router; lost wired connectivity

First off do the wired systems have a little tray icon showing a connection to the router?

I will ask another rather obvious question...

Did you shut off and disconnect the wireless Netgear and reset both computers and the IDSL router and see if the wired systems work fine without the Netgear device in?

If so its the Netgear device fudging up the works and is incompatible for whatever reason.

Somethings you can try are

Leaving the wired systems OFF and turning them on after the Netgear wireless connection and the laptop are up and running

Trying to connect the systems to the router in different orders after everything is shut off and reset.

And thats about it, odd things happen and odd solutions work. Especially when it comes to high speed internet, you would not believe the number of strange things I've had to do to get my friends high speed internet systems up and running.

Good Luck

Hi everyone,

Right now I have 2 routers, wireless ( one that is connected to internet and a normal wired ( one connected to local network.

When I have the wirless connected with the wired one unplugged, I can gain access to the internet.

The minute I plug in the wired one to access the local network, the wireless one still shows connected but the internet connection is lost ONLY on my PC. Other people connected to the wireless can still connect to the internet no problem.

I am running on Windows Vista Business 32bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi all!

I have a fujitsu notebook with a atheros wireless 5005g inegrated card. To make a long story short; when looking for wireless networks with the standard vista "wireless manager" I see full signal strength before connecting. After connecting it goes down to 2 (out of 6) levels. When using another computer connected to the same router, it receives full speed, both before and after connection. My wireless connection also disconnects alot, with a waiting periode of 30 seks or so before I`m able to reconnect.

I`ve seen similar problems (and solutions) for Linux users, but this does not help an average computer skilled guy like me.

My router is a Thomson Speedtouch 546i set up with wep security. (also tried Wpa etc)

appreciate all help I can get.


A:Low wireless signal with Atheros wireless 5005g

Hi Chrisdue,

To make a better analysis of your problem :
- does that other computer also run vista?
- which connection is lost ? to the router or to the internet?
- what is the driver you use for your wireless adapter? has it been signed ? did you look if any updates are available for the wireless card driver?

If internet connectivity is lost, I think upgrading the firmware of your router might be a good option.
If it's the connectivity to the router only we might need the information above to do a better troubleshooting.

Kind regards,

I want to expand my router's wireless signal in order to cover the whole house. I already have two modem/routers. Does it have anything to do with wireless bridge or something? Can I do it without using any kind of software? So note that I want to use the basic router which will have internet connection and use a second router to increase the wireless signal. It's crucial that I find a solution as soon as possible. Thanks in advance!

A:How do I use two wireless routers to expand wireless signal?

One router will supply DNS and DHCP (IP addresses), the other can be configured to be an access point. To achieve total coverage, run a CAT-5e cable from the main router to the access point (which will be located across the house), and have both use the same SSID.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it?

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

I set up everything and if I have it wired it works fine but wireless it says can't find page when you try to get on the internet. I have set up networks before and never had a problem. first time I have used a Belkin router G+ I guess one of my question is this. I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or
for it to see all other PCs. Or you can search for the PC by its computer name.
Additional things to check if you still have problems:
- Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
- XP gives access to its shares via the Net Guest Account. (Note, not the same as the local guest account in user accounts which should be off). Net Guest Account is enabled by default in XP, but to check it, open a command prompt and type: NET USER GUEST
Should return a line with 'Account active yes'.
Check XP Security policies:
- Access this computer from the network: add guest
- Deny logon locally: remove guest
- Network access:Sharing and security model... -> Guest only
- Deny access to this computer from the network-> check Guest is not here.

BT are providing me with their newest wireless router free of charge as part of the deal and I'll be using that to set up my wireless network, which will consist of an HP Pavilion desktop, a Toshiba laptop, a Sony Vaio laptop, an HP wireless printer and a Samsung HDTV.

This means my Sky wireless router is surplus to requirements, so I was wondering if I could convert it to a wireless access point to improve the range of my BT wireless network.

If so, how do I go about it?

I've read a couple of supposedly easy-to-understand articles on Google and have to say they left me more confused than ever.

Is there a straightforward way of doing this?

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable? As I have done some reading, some directions say straight, others say switched, some don't say at all. I just want to be sure I don't have a cabling issue. Thanks in advance for any information.

A:Solved: Connecting Wireless access point and wireless router

Well, a crossover cable will certainly work. If either end of the routers have auto-MDX ports, a straight patch cable will work as well.

I looked in Device Manager and don't see a wireless network adapter but under Network Infrastructue Devices I see "Microsoft Wireless Router Module". Are these the same thing? Thanks for help!

A:Wireless Network Adapter vs. Wireless Router Module

The device listed in Device Manager would most likely be your NIC (Network Interface Card) on your machine. This is the card that sends and receives data to and from your machine.

Wireless Router Module is most likely some software which enables your machine to obtain DHCP requests from your router as well as support other features which would not have been made available with the default settings. Based on the place you found the module 'Network Infrastructure Devices' I can assure you that an infrastructure device is not the same as a NIC

If you are able to provide a screenshot I may be able to offer a better explanation

I've just bought a Netgear Wireless Router WGR614v7, installed it fine and it runs the internet fine through the Ethernet cable.

My question which might sound silly is How do I now make my laptop run Wireless?

I have a HP laptop with build in Wireless Card.

I can run the internet through the Ethernet cable no problem at all. Just need to know how I configure my laptop wireless.

If I go into network connections in control panel It says I'm connected to my network.

But if I unplug the Ethernet cable I can't access the internet.

It's probably something simple but i just don't know what.

It may be simple, but without some information about what you have and what you are trying we can only guess. How about starting by showing us the following while connected via wireless and ethernet both.

Type the following command:


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

I assume you have something like

A:Connecting wireless router to wireless access point

Sounds like you want a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client). If you get a decent signal in the desired location and the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it should work fine. I use one (now discontinued, so I won't recommend it) myself for a camera whose integrated wireless no longer works.

I'm hoping this will also increase the wireless signal in the atticClick to expand...

That requires Repeater (or Range Extender) mode. If the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it will (I'm pretty sure) also include this mode. I understand that some units can do both jobs (wireless bridge and repeater) at the same time.

I didn't look at the specs or manuals for the units you mentioned; just indicating what you should be looking for.

Hi everyone and thanks for you time

We have a rather large spread on our property, and had a little tussle over placement of our Wireless G router (Lynksys). I've read enough about Wireless-N to know it would be a good opportunity to upgrade and convinced our landlord to do so.

However I'm not seeing any noticeable difference in terms of the network range after installing the Linksys WRT150N - I'm still stuck at about 100 feet with a direct line of sight, which is no difference from the previous router. I have little concern for speed as our local cable internet maxes out at 600 KB/s regardless, so I figured we would be set to go with our existing wireless cards.

My question then is - is it necessary to install Wireless N cards in our laptops to improve the range? Can't find much on this topic through Google.

A:Need Wireless-N card to boost Wireless-N router range?

I think it helps a little, however im not 100% sure, talk to your landlord about getting a range extender, you just plug them into the wall.

The router is a Netgear WNDA 3700 and cable service is thru Comcast. I play a lot of on-line games and sometimes the connection will drop and I get a lot of lag and sometimes die (no fun). I was wondering if it is possible to run a Cat 5 cable from the back of the router straight to my computer, there is 1 connection available on the router, and If this is possible I want to make sure it won't interfere with him getting on the internet and doing whatever he does while I'm on-line.

A:Wireless Access Point Connected to Wireless Router??

You should be able to connect. If you configure the access point with no security, does it connect then? That's the way to narrow this down.

Remember, you need to use the hex keys for WEP, not the passcode, since that's not always 100% reliable.

Do I "add a network place," "set up a home or small office network," or "set up a wireless network" first?

I don't have access to the hardware right now, but the plan is to use a D-Link 301 wireless router as a repeater so that the laptop in the upstairs (3rd floor) bedroom can reach the netgear wireless modem/router that connects to the internet. (Ground floor)
Currently, the netgear wireless signal is detacted on the middle floor, but not on the upper floor of the house.
Is this possible?
Where might I find information on this?
I have tried Google, but have not had any luck finding the information I need.

Is there a way to setup your computer to connect only to a specific wireless router in your area? I live in a college dorm and there are a lot of wireless connects available so I'm thinking that there might be complications with my computer with all the information in the air.

A:Setting up wireless receiver to receive a specified wireless router

In general, not really. You can configure your wireless router based upon some information gathering, to improve the quality of your connection.

What you would want to do is run some form of "Site Survey" (often with 3rd party wireless software or with wireless troubleshooting software) that will tell you all the wireless SSIDs in the area and their Channels. After that, find a channel with the least amount of utilization, and configure your wireless router to communicate on that channel. That should reduce the amount of interference you might possibly be getting, to improve your connection quality.

I can't think of any specific software that would do that kind of functionality, but I know there are some freeware or open-source wireless scanners out there which would give you more detailed information about the wireless networks in your area. Sadly, the windows "Wireless Zero Config" is not one of them.

If your wireless card came with its own utility (many of them do), that utility might provide that functionality as well.

After that, you can configure the wireless to only connect to your preferred networks, but it will still see the other networks in the area.

I got a new Linksys E2000 router a few weeks ago. It works fine with all the wireless laptops I have in the house, however I can not get an internet connection on this particular desktop PC using a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Network Adapter.

I've tried updating the driver but to no avail.

Any help would be apreciated.


A:Solved: New wireless-N router won't work with wireless-G PCI adapter

Shouldn't be a problem unless you have the router set to use 'N' only mode.

What encryption are you using? Have you tried connecting w/o encryption?

Hello friends!

I'm having a bit of trouble tonight trying to connect to my wireless router. Here are the specifics-

Router: Linksys Wireless B
OS: Windows 7
Wireless Adapter: Netgear Wireless G

I used the Netgear installation disc and ran the setup wizard. I was able to connect easily initially, and firefox opened to my google homepage. I tried a simple google search and it went offline. The taskbar icon shows "connections available" and when opened and prompted to connect to the found network, it was "unable to connect". I opened the Netgear set up wizard and it just keeps scanning the channels and never connects. Any suggestions??

Configure the channel of the secondary router to be different from the primary router. Keep them at least four channels apart. Configure both of them with the same SSID and encryption key, and you'll have seamless networking (well close) between them. You can use this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector to find the clearest channels.

The secondary router should also be configured as follows to create a single network where all the connected devices are peers.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).
