      The Netgear DG834GT supports the facility to connect two routers together via WiFi using either WEP or no encryption. The Sagem 2304n does not.

      Personally I would suggest that the best way to connect the two would be to either run a length of Ethernet cable (perhaps behind the wall to a socket) or use a pair of HomePlugs. To configure the Netgear DG834GT, take a look at the thread linked below:
