Router to Router ?

  daba 11:07 14 Oct 2007

Just had tiscali TV installed, has Speedtouch wireless router connection to broadband.

My PC (in another room) has a D-Link router, which serves the PC (wired), son's PC (wireless), and his PS2 (wired).

Obviously I can't have both routers connected to the braodband at the same time, so I was wondering if it was possible to get my router to get its broadband connection wirelessly from the Speedtouch router. This would save a lot of difficult re-wiring, and save me having to get a Wireless LAN card for my PC.

Looks promising - although I can't see any settings in the D-Link for using it in repeater mode.

I'll have a crack at it in the next few days - and post back results

Word back from D-Link tech support.

The G604T cannot act as a wireless repeater, but I can use it as a switch, but I will have to run an ethernet cable to the Speedtouch.

Oh well, justa thought.....
