  1. i have two desktops and a laptop wired through a router and a linksys wireless router (wrt54g) wired in also

    all works good

    even the wireless on my laptop

    so i can use my laptop wireless or wired either one

    now my brother gave me his linksys router (wrt54g) that he had set up at his house

    i want to use his as a area extender

    i want to put it down the road where i have a cabin and exted my network to there

    so basically i want to use two linksys routers on one network to extend my area

    when i hook up the second router the wireless link light comes on

    so i hard wire my laptop to the second router and it sais i dont have permission to use shared folders and no internet

    does anyone know how to make this fly???!

    i am choking on this project

    can this be done??!?

    thanks so much for the help in advance

    First, you should take a look at the amazing "search" feature. If you have any questions after reading the (half a dozen at least) "I want to daisy-chain two routers" threads, feel free to ask them.

    How about a link then

    Hey Nodsu I've seen your lil quipe on every search for 'daisy chaining two routers' yet I've found no such post as you suggest in this forum that would help someone daisy-chain routers. How about you reply with some links to threads which actually could provide some useful info on daisy chaining two routers. Thanks

    I was waiting for someone to show up who would actually use the "daisy-chain" search term instead of the bleeding obvious "two routers" :p

    Well considering I did not find any useful info in these forums toward the end which you stated did exist which didn't I found my info elsewhere. I hope I'm booted from this forum for saying, what sort of admins run this domain if a wanker like nodsu is considered 'ts special forces'. I'd look elsewhere for solutions than this forum as I consider it junk

    Is daisy-chaining router 1 Uplink to router 2 WAN?

    sometimes like Nodsu I get cranky spoon feeding
    when subjects like this one have been beaten to death
    Google first is a good rule when lost
    I know there's search for this forum it is not a good one
    maybe mod should add a google search for techspot
