Wireless Access Points and BroadBand Router

  wiltshireguy 20:13 12 Jan 2004


I have a Linksys Wireless Broadband Router with 4 Ports and a WAN Port. I intend to plug a BroadBand connection into it using the WAN port and bobs your uncle I have a wireless network whenI connect a lappy and desktop to it using PCMCIA and PCI cards that can access the internet. Now I want to extend this wireless network so that it'll work in other parts on the house as at the moment the connectionwould be poor in other rooms.

Can I just plug in an Access Point and use this as a sort of Bridge to the Broadband Router inbetween me and the Broadband Router. Or do I need to hard wire the Access Point using a port from the Router and Ethernet cable?
