am moving house over to live with the GF.
anyways, she wants me to put the PC in the bedroom rather than the front room (where I want it so I can link the HDMI on my GFX card to the TV)
her modem and router are in her front room (netgear 614 v9)
i have a Buffalo WHR G54s router which can also be used as an access point.
tried another few forums trying to get a straight answer to this but no one can give me one in very simple terms:
if I set my router to bridge mode with the switch on the underside and attach it via one of the LAN ports to my PC, will it be able to see the netgear router in her front room?
can I use my buffalo router as a wifi reciever like that, just plugged into my PC's ethernet?
i thought the point of an access point was to recieve a signal, re-amplify it and send it on.
so lets get this straight
front room: cable modem to netgear router broadcasting wirelessly (means she can use her laptop in there too),SSID is currently 'Ourflat', using WPA-TKIP as security
my PC in the bedroom with the buffalo router set on Bridge/access point mode and attached to the ethernet on my PC?
any config to be done here?
someone walk me though it
