MN-700 issues extending wireless Network

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.broadbandnet.hardware (More info?)

I am trying to use the mn-700 to extend my current
network. I would like to place the mn-700 in one room with
both my Xbox and a PC and connect to my other wireless
router in another room. Is this possible to do with out
having to connect a wire from one room to the other?

David.

    the 700 will not bridge wirelessly, it must be hardwired. what you need is
    an XBOX adapter - MN-740. you can configure that on the XBOX, then connect a
    switch or hub to it and connect both the XBOX and the PC to the switch.

    What if I configure both routers as AP's will that solve
    the issue. I have one mn-500 and one mn-700. Or should I
    just return one the routers and get the xbox adapter?
