Extending wifi with 2 routers

  bozmar 10:36 04 Nov 07

I have seen several threads about this, but they could not help with this problem.

I have two Voyager 2091 wireless routers. One is downstairs, connected to the DSL. Signal is weak upstairs and I would like to use my other router to act as repeater. So, I will have my laptop connect wirelessly with my router upstairs, which will relay everything in/out to the router downstairs wirelessly.

I have tried many suggestions on the previous threads, none worked:
* On the same channel with different SSIDs, while setting each as repeater of the other.
* Turning off DHCP on router upstairs and assigning it a static IP, while setting each as repeater of the other.
* Connecting my laptop with the router upstairs via ethernet cable.
* ..etc.

I believe the problem lays in the wireless connection between the two routers.
