Help me set up WRT54G as a router while I ask dumb questions
Ok, so my broadband provider supplied me with a re-branded netgear modem/wifi router. It's worked OK for the past year but never got a super wifi connection downstairs. Now I guess it's on it's way out or something because we've completely lost the signal downstairs (although it's still pretty strong upstairs, the floor that the modem/router is on).
So, I have an older Linksys WRT54G that I used to use with our old broadband modem that didn't have a wifi router built in. What I'd like to do is configure this as a wireless router, so that I can position it somewhere else upstairs (the office which the netgear modem/router is in sticks way out at the front of the house, so ideally I'd like to position the linksys router in a more internal position upstairs so that it gives better coverage for the whole bottom floor).
I've plugged it in, reset it (so the password to access 192.168.1.1 is current admin/admin so I can access the configuration stuff) and checked that I can connect to it via my laptop wirelessly (which I can). What I don't know how to do is to go from here to getting it to connect to the netgear modem/router via wifi. I have the network key for the modem/router but no idea how to actually configure the Linksys to connect to it.
I'm presuming this is a reasonably simple endeavour, but as I said, I'll probably ask dumb questions and have to get you to repeat steps in more detail until I get it right. I've had a google around and found a few threads that probably contain all the information I need but I can't decipher their brief steps. In the meantime, I'll try and provide all the information you need assuming you tell me how to find that information
