Re: setting up a wireless access point
are these cable routers or ADSL routers?
if you've got a cable router, (one with a regular network port in it).
then you can use router A downstairs and have it feed wireless signal A everywhere that it can reach.
you could then feed a cable from router A's LAN port to the internet port of router B and have wireless network B upstairs.
you can even give wireless networks A and B the same SSID and access keys so they look like the same network.
As far as I now there are no ways that you can extend the range of wireless access point A using a different router.
There are some wireless access points that are set up such that you can extend a LAN and extend wireless for the LAN.
trying to do it with a couple of routers is going to end in all kind of headaches regarding routing, DHCP, DNS gateway addresses communications between machines attached to the different wireless networks.
if I find the time I'll have a little experiment at home with a couple of spare routers to see if I can extend the wireless range. but really the easiest way to do it is going to be to use a proper wireless access point.
