Hi Guys,

I need a quick answer please!!

I have two modems, i want to use the one to act as an access point to 'see' the other modem.

I basically want to know if i can substitute my wireless PCI card for the router?

Will one router connect to another router and let me surf / download stuff?

Thanks

you need to clarify your question and your intentions here..

you said you've got two modems, but then you start talking about routers. if they are modems why do you have/need two modems? if they're routers, why do you have/need two routers? what are you trying to achieve?

Hi people. No it's not the same computer with the bsod. That topic i will get to this weekend after i've done some other stuff. What i meant to say is i have 2 router's. Not modems. The one is in the house, and the other one is in a granny flat about 12m away. I want to use the one router as a wireless card to connect to the other router and access the internet. Can it be done?

you won't be able to do that with a wireless router...wireless routers don't connect to other routers wirelessly

you would need a Range Extender or a Wireless bridge

12 meters isn't THAT far (36 feet....ish) and if you place your wireless router in the proper location (up high, near a window that has line of site to the flat, etc...) you might be able to get a wireless connection without any extra equipment, assuming that the devices in the flat are wireless capable
