    Hi,

    I would like to connect my Belkin Wireless Router (very old) to my Netgear DGN1000 (old) wirelessly to expand my network's range.

    How would I go about doing this?

    I would also like to know If I should buy a "TP-Link TL-WR1043ND" router, and could I connect that to my netgear?

    My routers:

    • Netgear DGN1000 (Modem & Router)
    • Belkin F5D7231-4 (Ver 3000UK)

    Thank's alot for the advice, but.. DD-WRT is not compatible with my device, It is compatible with the 2000v & 1000v but not my 3000v. Any other suggestions?

    Added Belkin router name.

    DD-WRT is not supported for my device. Any other firmware that will support it?

    That thread is different.. if you had read it out you would know. I'm asking how to open router config with 2 routers.. it turns out I had to 30/30/30 reset my router :mad:

    What was happening before you "had" to do the 30/30/30 reset? I've read all your various posts and like roirraW "edor" ahT, I find it quite difficult to help you when you spread your situation over multiple threads. All of your problems/situations are related and what you might try as a result of one thread's responses can very likely affect what you do as the result of another thread.

    You are trying to setup a wireless bridge or repeater. The short answer is without an RJ45 Ethernet cable, it won't be possible with the equipment you have. Best solution IMHO would be homeplugs.

    Not trying to be funny, but I am pretty sure you can't connect to an iPod with an Ethernet cable. Any .. pre-made wireless repeaters out there?

    most newer netgear 150 N (like my WNR1000V3) and up have it in the menu already.. Wireless repeater function.
    :cool:

    put it between u and the other wireless modem to re broadcast the wireless

    So you might think but its not the case. I have the WNR2000 v2, capable of acting as a dhcp client / bridge / repeater . However my adsl base unit does not support bridging, so no dice as is the case foe the OP. they only viable method AFAIK would be to link two routers with an RJ45 cable using the second router as a client, thus extending the wireless range upstairs to the OP's iPad.

    Doesn't matter, found the most genius idea; since my netgear router cant support WDS (or bridging.. ect) it can support a router connecting to its ethernet port, what I am going to do is install homeplugs, to another s**t router upstairs (belkin F5Dxxx something) that way I get ethernet + crap wireless. ;)
