Default 2 questions

First question is i already have a router. I now have a linksys wireless router too. I was wondering if i could plug it into my other router to get the internet. I have a linksys wirless card upstairs. I just hooked it up and it connects to something but the internet doesnt work. I hit connect again in a different window and it brings me to another screen. It then asks for a passphrase. I guess i need it?

First, you need to connect your wireless router to a computer. ... Under "Network key," enter the same passphrase you used for your router. I can't help you with the passsphase you'll have to figure what it was.

please reply to this topic and tell us If this informatoin help your situation. thank you

so wait. theres no way you can just have a router hooked up to a cable/dsl modem seperate from a computer, just lying around the house to have a network? It has to be connected to a computer? i've seen it done before
