Router to router connection

Router to router connection

Router to router connection

(OP)
Hi all how can I connect one router to another?
No hub, switch or cabling is going to do this job.

My original thread outlines the situation.

Okay, I have a limited choice of wifi access for my dessktop.

1. A Prolink Wn 2100 Usb dongle
2. A Gigabyte AirCruiser GN-BC01 802.11g (Which as I understand it is an access point and router)

Now if I can use the Aircruiser (incidentally $10 cheaper than the dongle!?!) That's the way I want to go especially when I bring in the pringles element of my solution.

What's yur opinion guys? Aircruiser and pringles or USB and a wok? This is going to be fun either way eh winky smile

RE: Router to router connection

Search for aftermarket firmware to flash the access point that will allow you to convert it to a bridge/router. There were several available for linksys WRT54G routers before Cisco turned them into junk.

Thanks TC.

Got a WMP54G adpater in the end.  Now I've dug out the old military radio equipment quarter and am in the process of making my own cantenna (easy) pigtail (not so easy)!

But cheers again
