    im new to the wirless world i did try a search but didnt really help me out much, i was wondering if you have 2 wrt54gs routers can you use one as a range expander, I need to get more signal to my back house about 50 ft away with 2 walls in the way. if this is not possible to do would the thibor15c help or a set of HGA7T do the job, any halp will be greatly apreciated, i am currently 3 linksys firmaware versions behind would upgrading to the newest one help some.

    You can upgrade them to Thibor and setup WDS. This would let the second router be a repeater.

    WDS (wireless distribution system). It extends your wireless coverage. Drawback is your bandwidth will be cut in half. Another 3rd party firmware support WDS is dd-wrt
