Default How do I do this?



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Hello all, i need to link both of the above routers together. I know how to do this using an ethernet cable but unfortunately that isnt an option due to the house belonging to my Grandfather.

I would like to know if someone could point me towards whether I need to setup router B as an access point or a repeater and if they know of a guide to do so?

Router/Modem A is a Thomson TG585v7
next week this can change to a Netgear DG834PN

Router B is a Netgear WNDR3700

Thank you!

Or setup Router B up as a wireless repeater (or buy one). Besides, routers all have 4 port switches on them. Just make sure only one of the routers is using DHCP.
