Hey I got a big house and I want to routers to be able to have wireless throughout the house. So I got a power-line adapter connected to the first router and the second power-line to the second router. The first is a netgear wrd4500 and the second is a dlink dir-825. The first one is default firmware and the second has dd-wrt flashed on it. so what do i need to do?


thanks to this, its pretty simple just do the long version http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Access_Point

DD-WRT can disable the router part of it to become a switch/access point.

Only thing you can do is learn how to do something and not be spoon fed into doing it.

get a wireless signal booster, why are you trying to deal with 2 routers not nessary ???

though if you insist on doing this the hard way get a Hub and though I have never tryed it I believe it will be possble to run 2 routers off that hub or as many as you like for that matter the problem is the hub can only handle so much data so if each router is sending and recieveing at the hubs limit it will slow dow the connection and the more machine useing the signal it becomes doublly bogged and many data jams and lost connections..

i know this much I have a pretty large brick house use one net gear router not only get signal everywhere in the house but I can still log on with my lap top just about 1/4 mile up the street from my house no booster no wirers no needs for 2 routers one block up the street in the neighbors house I can still log on my own cable connection ..

the signal meter shows the router is providing enough signal to provide half the neighborhood with signal ..
