this is going to seem a bit strange but anyway here goes I have a netgear dgn1000 modem/router as well as three belkin f5d7230 wireless routers and a netgear wgr614v10 wireless router and also lynksys wrt54gs ver6; wrt54gs v7; befw11s4 ver4; wap11 ver2.6. I have no problem bridging the belkin routers and making them communicate with each other wirelessly but I don't seem to be able to make them comunicate with any of the others wirelessly nor any of the others communicate with each other. I have multiple computers in multiple rooms and most do not have wireless cards in them so I use the routers to efectively couple multiple network segments together can anyone help my delema or atleast tell me if there is any combo that is possible lol

I'm sure one of our members will come along shortly with some information on using multiple Wireless Access Points (the WAPs attached to your router/modem/switches, and with details of which unit is capable of communicating on the lines you suggest with its fellows...how to configure the compatible units, disable DHCP (as required) and implement bridging etc...

In the meantime it might be worth using a simple home networking device often called "Homeplug network adapters", these are inexpensive, provide a good strong Internet connection via the house electrical wiring accessed through any electrical outlet in the house (connected to the same electric meter)

I set up a home network for a customer this morning, took less than 5 minutes and cost ( for the equipment.. (GBP) £15... which is around (USD) $20 or so... maybe less as things electronic are often considerably cheaper in USA compared with UK...

Hope this helps
