  1. hi all

    after a bit of a slog trying to log on here (had to setup a new user as my old one was not sending password resets) im finally on! phew

    anyways im after a bit of advice with regards to extending my wireless range.

    currently my setup is as follows

    phone line > netgear ADSL2+ wireless router (834gv4 iirc)> eithernet cable to my pc (out of range)

    however the other day I came across a netgear DG834GT super wireless adsl router.

    does anyone know how I can set the DG834GT to act as a extender or repeater (not sure on the correct terminology here)

    all I want to do is extend the signal to the few rooms that dont get it.

    thanks :)

    What you need to do is setup the 2nd router as an access point. You run an ethernet cable from your first router (the one hooked up to the dsl modem) to the 2nd router but before you do thaqt configure the 2nd as an access point.. Also make sure the set it to a different channel and the same SSID. I can not give you specific instructions or even know for sure the the 834GT is capable but that is what you need to extend your range.
