I have 2 computers downstairs, and 1 upstairs.
I have a Netgear DG834G wireless ADSL router. One computer downstairs is connected via ethernet - fine. The other downstairs computer uses wireless - which works fine. The upstairs computer, however, has great difficulty with its wireless connection.
I have either "very low" or no connection at all using an internal PCI adapter. I have also tried using a USB adapter, but this involves trailing USB extensions around my room to get a decent signal, and the adapter also gets very hot, and sometimes stops working.
So, I bought a Netgear wireless access point. I want to connect the upstairs computer to this access point via ETHERNET, and then I need the wireless access point to connect wirelessly to the router downstairs to bridge the network. I have tried to set up this bridge, but I can't connect to the router, or the downstairs computer, or the internet, from my computer upstairs.
I am a bit stuck here! Any advice is greatly appreciated.
