  1. Hi Could you please tell me if this is possible:
    My computer is connected to a wireless network. Can I hook up my D-link (DIR-412) to my computer and use the internet from the computer to output another wireless area?

    Thanks sounds complicated.

    Where you live is your setup like this?

    #1
    Internet
    Modem
    WiFi Router

    or

    #2
    Internet
    Modem with built-in WiFi Router

    If you want extend the WiFi you would get WiFi Access Point. Or you can take a WiFi Router and disable NAT, SPI, DCHP, then you create a static IP address. 192.168.x.50
