Linking two routers together Tags: Connectivity Wireless Routers Netgear Belkin Wireless Networking Last response: April 10, 2009 4:26 AM in Wireless Networking Share knowlton April 8, 2009 11:55:53 PM I have 2 wireless routers Belkin: Model #: F5D7230-4 NetGear: Model #: WNR834B v2 I want to be able to do this: basement PC with wireless card -- > Belkin --> NetGear --> Internet Now, the NetGear router is already connecting to the internet just fine. The basement PC with wireless card **CAN** also connect to the NetGear router (and thus the internet) but the signal is weak. So, I want to position the Belkin router at the top of the basement stairs so it can act like a "relay" for the signal. I need some help configuring this.

It seems like at some point I can no longer "get to" the router settings, and the IP address changes to 169.254.x.x I'll check the link. I'll also try to come back and post with more information.
