Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

Im looking for some information regarding setting up an internet access point in my living room for devices that need to connect through a wired ethernet connection.. Id like to achieve this wirelessly using an existing wireless router located in my office to transmit the connection over-the-air..

Thanks for any help..

If you haven't gotten the wireless device your going to use we can't be of much help here. There are a couple books I would recommend to read over.
PC Annoyances, Internet Annoyances, Home Networking Annoyances all publised by O'Reilly. Give those book a look over if they are available in your area.

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

My office is located inside my home where signal strength would not be a concern as Im able to pick up a strong enough signal anywhere in the house..

Im basically trying to figure out what type of hardware I would need at the cable modem end to send that internet signal wirelessly over to the living room where I can connect the devices utilizing the ethernet ports.. At the same token, I would like to know what type of hardware should be at the receiving end in the living room..

I hope I am reading this right, if I am, you need a router at the cable modem and adapter ,usually a usb, to receive the computer being routed to. Laptops and desktops have different adapters. Hope this is what you meant.

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

I have non-computer devices in my living room like an HD DVD player which accepts an ethernet cable.. I would like to run an internet signal to these devices using a router that can feed off my Wi-Fi signal coming from my office..

Im sorry if Im not making myself clear enough, its difficult to put into words when you dont know much on how to go about it..

Thanks for bearing with me..

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

What you want is Wireless Bridge, or Range Extender, or Repeater.

Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124037

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

Since you are already getting a strong signal throughout the house all you need is another router like the one you have and set it up to recieve the signal.And plug your devices into it.

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

If you're going to a repeater or a bridge, make sure it supports WPA2 otherwise it's useless.

Does that have to be connected to the router all the time or can I place it anywhere in the house after I configured it?

Actually I dont think my router (Netgear WGT624v2) supports that.. What type of capabilities should I be looking for in a router that will allow it to feed off another existing router wirelessly?

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

Here's a link to your router page:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGT624v2.asp

This page shows how to set up a router:

Check this page out for more info in connecting up 2 routers or using extenders:

Re: Wireless Router and Internet Access Point

So far this is what I have come up with:

A wireless extender is no good since I cant connect any devices that utilize the hard wire ethernet ports..

I need the main router (with internet connection) to be WDS compatible and the receiving router must have wireless client ability..

Yes that may be what you are looking for, it has the ports for hardwiring extra devices.
A little expensive which is why I suggested a router itself they are cheaper and some can be configured to do what you want.
I have never done it myself just heard it can be done.
Most people just do the usb wireless connection for the devices in there homes and not reverting back to a hardwire setup.

Make sure you download and read the manuel before buying to ensure that it will do what you want.

Sorry at work and got called away

I was going to add that I would look for something from Netgear since you have a Netgear router already.Lot better chance of the 2 devices talking to each other.

You may actually want to contact Netgear support and see what they have to say, they may be able to give you other options.
