Hi,
First of all I dont know much or anything about networking. We have a linksys WAG120N router in the living room and connecting to it was a Siemens Gigaset SE538 in the bedroom, which died out last nite. since im only getting 2 bars in the bedroom, i was thinking of buying another WAG120N and connecting it to the 1 in the living room so i can have full bars. is this possible?? would i encounter problems on this??

I'm not familiar with the Gigaset SE538. Is it a DSL modem or a wireless router/modem combo which is also known as a gateway?


The WAG120N is a xDSL gateway which should can and probably should be wall mounted as high as possible.

Mounting it high half way between the bedroom and the living room would be optimal.

thnaks for the reply daffy! i bought another wrt120n and connected it to the wag120N via cat6. so its now serving as an access point in the bed room. i was just worried maybe i would be encountering problems in connecting it thus spending money for nothing. but so far everything is going well. thanks again. :)

Hi,

I'm going to buy 2 Linksys WAG120N and want to know if i can connect them to each other (through ethernet cable) and then connect one of them to my internet router (Source). So, i am going to use them as TWO access points.
Is that possible?

thanks!!
