Configuring a second DI-524 wireless router within an existing wireless network

Configuring a second DI-524 wireless router within an existing wireless network

Hi,

I have the following configuration:

Internet <---> ADSL modem <--LAN wire--> DI-524 wireless router <--
Wireless--> Laptop/PC

However, the DI-524 wireless router does not have the range we
expected (because of heavy concrete walls in the house). I have a
SECOND DI-524 router that I propose to place inbetween the first and
the laptop, as follows:

Internet <---> ADSL modem <--LAN wire--> FIRST DI-524 wireless router
<--**Wireless**--> SECOND DI-524 wireless router <--Wireless--> Laptop/
PC

My question to you is: how can I configure the SECOND DI-524 wireless
router in such a way that the entire wireless network appears
seamlessly connected. Just FYI, I cannot connect the second DI-524
wireless router with a LAN wire.

Thanks,
Sid

Can't? Or just don't want expend the effort? By the time you finish
diddling around with trying various Wifi bridging it'll make running wire
seem trivial. Pull the wire and setup the second router as an access point
on the same SSID. Much less hassle. There's also the option of using power
line ethernet devices to extend the network. Supposedly recent ones are
better.

Hi
To connected Wirelessly two Wireless Router they have to be configured to
work as WDS. The Dl-524 can not be configure as WDS, you have to buy
Wireless Routers that support WDS or find if D-Link has an Extender that
Support WDS with the DI-524.
