Wireless DHCP network problems

  1. Hey,


    I am really suck with my network. I live in a shared house and the landlord seems to have no idea so I'm having to take control, though as you'll quickly notice I dont have much clue either.


    We have a Virgin internet router downstairs, provided by thembut the wireless signal hardly passes the room, so there is a cat 5e cable through the wall, upstairs to a router that I have installed DD-WRT on, that we then intend everyone to connect to wirelessly, though some are wired.


    I have put the cable from the Virgin box into the Linksys normal bit (not the one that you usually put the internet one in), but I have no idea what to do now. I've tried searching but all I can find is if I was picking up the internet wirelessly, but it its wired. A few things seem to mention DHCP though.


    Any help would be amazing please. If you dont have time to write how, or point me in the right direction, then just the name of what I'm trying to do would be much appreciated, but any help would be great.


    Thanks a lot,

    Andy

    one approach: multiple routers

    I've written this several times, so I'll refer to a common post here.

    Ask specific questions and I'll reply
