      Router on a Router :) Help please

      OK i have my current sky modem (Router A) connected to the Master phone socket, Off this router (Router A) i run a ethernet cable to my pc, up stairs i have a xbox 360 which is wired to Router A, i just recently got a laptop which i would like to use wirelessly in my room, but the signal is too low, so what i have now done is connect another wireless router (Router B) into Router A by cable insted of the xbox and had the xbox just go into Router B, but of course i want my laptop to connect to router B becuase its stronger signal, now xbox works online like this set up, but the wireless laptop just wont establish a connection to the wireless just keeps saying aquiring network address, then goes off, how can i set this up for the wireless to work like the xbox does?

      Thanks alot

      Re: Router on a Router :) Help please

      Can i just take this oppurtunity to say that is one hell of a setup loll rite u are goin to have your work cut out for ya with this one. I am just crossing my fingers that you know how to do this lol. Try changing the encryption to WEP but the only thing i am thinkin of is that you have 2 routers connected up so both are goin to be wireless so you need to choose which 1 of the 2 you are going to disable as wireless may it be router A or router B lol. If you need me to run u by how to change the encryption to WEP give me a shout but remember if you do this you will have to set your xbox and laptop up with the same configuration. You would be better seeking help of microsoft for doin it with the xbox if your not so sure
