I have been offered a router and i wondered if i could use it like a switch without conecting it to a jack. it is a wireless router and i have another plugged in upstairs. i would like to put this one down stairs and connect a computer to it to access the internet/home network. do i have to adjust the channels if i do 1 , 6 , 11. Just want to know before i accept it.
wireless, need to put it in an area with no telephone wiring, using a dsl wireless router upstairs. i have non wireless computer that i would like to have in the basement for work and want to conect it to the internet, dont want to run wires really.
I am using dd-wrt on my linksys router to connect my living room equipment to the internet without running any wires.
If you don't want to do that, then you will have to do what mitch said. Connect the two routers using a network cable and set up the second router's isp settings as the first router. In other words, the ip address given from the first router to the second, is to be used as the isp address of the second router.
