For my work, I am required to use a wired router (a D-Link DI-604) that currently connects my laptop (Dell XPS M 140) and desktop (HP L1706).
My roommate needs internet access upstairs. So, I ordered a wireless router (Netgear Gateway Router RT 311) to provide internet access for the other computers in our home. So, I tried having a connection where the cable modem and wired router are directly connected and the wired and wireless routers are connected. First and foremost, would this type of set-up even work? My laptop (when not connected with the wired router), now indicates that a WiFi connection is present. However, when I go to view the wireless connections available, no connections are shown.
In advance, THANK YOU!!
