    would it be possible to have one router connected to a modem, then have the second router connect to the first using wifi, and allow for the ports to be used, and other wifi connections made to both routers? sorry if this has been asked, or if my wording isnt proper.

    yes, very easy and stable.

    Install Thibor11 on both and enable WDS/AP (both WDS for connecting routers and AP for serving wireless).

    I am running it and it is very stable.

    help please?

    Just installed 11 on both routers, and have wds-ap enabled on both. I can only get internet from whichever router is connected to the modem. I have each router set to different ip's(one is default, the other is 192.168.1.2) ssid's router names and ranges(a 4 user range for the .1 router, starting at 100, and a 3 user range for the .2 starting at 200), might i need to set them all to be the same?


    --edit--

    ok, so i can connect to either router through wifi and get a useable signal, but i cant use the lan ports on the 2nd router(which ever isnt connect to the modem) to connect to the internet, which is what i want, i dont need extra range, just the abilty to bring a wired connection to another room via the wifi router. save the hassle of running 100foot cable ya know.

    If you can help that would be grand, or is using the 4 lan ports on the remote router not possible?
