    Hi this is my first post and I am only fairly capable of understanding most of the jargon.
    For the past week I have read multiple instructions on a second wireless router and see conflicting instructions in a lot of them.

    Here is what I need: I currently have a Linksys EA6500 wireless router setup and running. I use the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router setup to make router changes. I have Cat5 wiring throughout my house. In my master b/r my wifi signal is only about 17db. I need that to be stronger. . I really only need to be able to roam from room to room and not loose my connection. I also have a Smart TV in the master br that uses wi-fi to connect to Amazon movies, etc. I really do not need to access files on my computer.

    I have ordered a Linksys EA4500 to connect to my Cat 5 Ethernet in my master br. Which is the best modes to set it up to accomplish what I need; Bridge, Cascade, or something else. Linksys seems to promote Cascade, but I am not convinced.

    Thanks for any help (and I do not want to download DD-WRT yet).

    Never mind, I received help from the Linksys Community Forum.
