Using Router As Wireless Repeater But Connecting By Wire
Hi folks, I am currently using a dying wireless USB adapter to access the home network. I have an old wireless router lying around that I would like to use as a repeater/access point. Here's what I would like to do:
1) Connect my PC to the repeater via wire. 2) Use the repeater to connect wirelessly to the existing home network 3) Proffit???
Is that possible?
I believe I can use the old wireless card as a "real" repeater and have that extend the existing signal. However, like I said, my wireless adapter is dying. Can't I use the old router as a repeater, but connect to it with a wire instead of wirelessly?

not every router can be used as or converted to a wireless repeater.
