What I am trying to achieve is as follows:
'Master' Router 1 (whichever router is better - I dont know which one has the better speification - if you know please do tell!) - will go downstairs because that is where the master socket is - atm I am running the net off 2 phone extensions - ie there is one extension then 1 off that then it goes to the router. It will provide excellent ground level coverage (thats the idea anyway).
'Slave' Router 2 - Will go in my room upstairs providing coverage upstairs.
Both I believe are G routers - they have rather bad coverage signal strength wise. Should I consider replacing the anttenas - or making a 'cantenna'?
Now from router 1 I hope to run 2 ethernet cables 1 for this PC (family PC) which is located upstairs in the living room; and the other cable to my room into router 2 which is I believe how a bridge or repeat is setup??? Apparently then I dont need a phone line for the second router. I may consider running a 3rd ethernet cable solely for the PS3 if the signal is too shoddy form my room to the living room (about 6-7 meters in a straight line with 2 solid brick walls in between - well due to the layout its kinda 3 walls).
How can I go about doing this and can I based ont he routers I have? I want both the PC's to have direct ethernet connection to the internet as I find that wireless is tempremental and I dont want to have to buy a special wireless adapter for this PC (it doesnt have any wireless capabilities nor does my PC) and seeing as I have another router lying around I want to make the most of my resources. Should it come to that I may just get a switch but I want to make use of the second ZxYEL router.
Many thanks in advance
