Okay, here's a question for you folks who are savvy with the details of setting up a WiFi network in your home. I have a cable modem which connects to a WiFi-capable router, giving me four wired ports plus how ever many wireless connections I need, as long as there are enough IP addresses to go around. I have a computer which needs to be set up at the opposite end of the apartment from where the cable modem and router are located, so a wired connection is impractical. I have a second WiFi router (different brand but same capabilities). Can the two routers be set up so that they can serve WiFi devices like a laptop AND talk to each other, effectively extending my WiFi reach? I used to have a WiFi transceiver which could talk through the single router, but I've lost track of it during our recent move between states. I'm just wondering if there's a way to use the second router in a similar manner (wired connection to second computer but wireless to first router).
