  1. Hi, Came across this site while Googling, and wanted to join to ask questions.
    So if any techie out there can explain a way to hook up 2 wireless routers to 1 DSL Moden from Bell South (Netopia Modem), I would sure appreciate the help. I have a Linksys Wireless and a Netgear RangeMax ---- can they both be hooked to the Netopia DSL Modem, which has 4 additional ports on the back?

    modem-->(wan)RouterA(LAN)---(lan)RouterB --- other Lan connections

    do not use the WAN port on RouterB

    access routerB config page and DISABLE DHCP services.

    Thanks

    jobeard, thanks, I been doing some searching on boosters and came across the Linksys Range Expander - I'm going to give that a try before trying to make two wireless routers work off my one dsl modem --- but thanks again- I may be back later asking more questions.
