  1. OK so here is what im trying to do,

    im trying to set up a second wireless router inside a warehouse to connect to the other wireless router that has an internet connection,

    running a calble is out of the question because its already been run its just not hooked up properly and i need to get a router working in the midle of the warehouse for the machines that dont have a wireless card attached,

    I have access to everything, the normal router ( which im not sure exactly what it is)
    a Linksys broadband router model# BEFSR41
    and a INEXQ dls/cable wireless router model # Isw054T


    so to clarify i need to set up a second router to connect to the other router so i can connect the machines with out wireless cards.



    Also im sorry if this is in the wrong forum

    Get an Access Point rather than a Router.

    Then setup in BRIDGE mode :)

    Sorry then -- what did you expect? You already said you can't get a wired solution, so wifi is the only alternative.

    you *might* be able to get a router that supports bridge mode but that's the end of the road as I know it.

    might be impossible ok i get that.

    i'll look into wether i can use the linksys one as a bridge.

    I only know of one way and one router that I have done that on. It was a Dell router. It have the ability to change is config from Router to acess point and open hub or extention. It works but it needed to be reset every once in awhile. Both sides. Check for routers that can change personalities.

    Go for this; it's a good choice but remember to encrypt the channel :)
