Connecting Wireless Netgear Router to Linksys Router


#1

I’m running two windows boxes right now. One is in the upstairs of my house and the other is in an auxiliary shed, about 100 feet from the house. I Have a wireless router (Netgear WNDR3300) acting as my gateway and it is broadcasting about halfway between the upstairs PC and the shed pc. The upstairs PC is hardwired to the router and the shed pc is not.

I have a spare Linksys wireless router (Don’t know the model number) and I was wondering if it was possible to use the Linksys as a connection bridge so I can access the Netgear wirelessly.

If not, I have to Linksys WUSB54GC wireless G USB adapter to use. Only problem is, the support software won’t install on the PC that needs the adapter and the drivers won’t work either. :annoy:

Anyone have a suggestion to help me with this predicament? This is a job that I’m doing for a friend, and I really don’t like the idea of telling them to talk to Comcast about setting up a cable line at the shed.

Yes, if the linksys is a WRT54G, you can flash the firmware to DD-WRT.

Go to dd-wrt.com. Instructions for flashing the router will be there.
