      Tricky conguration help needed :D

      Hey
      Lets start with what I have
      Router 1: Netgear DG834GT v1 Firmware: V1.03.87 (Active Internet connection this is the main router)

      Router 2: Netgear DG834GT v1 Firmware: V1.02.14 (Located in my bedroom the firmware is up to date)

      I want to the Router 2 to repeat/bridge the Internet signal to my laptop. A few things I want to say I know of all the networking devices I could use that are easy to set up some are plug and play technology but I want to do this.

      Don't forget the that main Sky router is firmware locked.

      A step and step guild would be very much appreciated

      You should in theory be able to do what you want by turning DHCP off on the second router and assigning it a manual IP in the 192.168.0.x range (just not .1 for obvious reasons).

      I have a simular setup already. The DG router cannot be used as a wireless repeater, (ie to repeat the internet signal without a cat5/6 cable interconnecting the 2 routers)

      However if you have got a networking cable going between them both, then the wireless signall wil be boosted by the second router.

      On the second router you will need to disable DHCP as stated above.
