Hi there guys ive been trying to make my wireless router a extender my room is in the basement i get good internet down here but i was hoping that with my old router i could use it as a ethernet hub so i can use one of my rigs to do diskless network booting seeing as you cant do that over wireless any ideas??? or other ideas basically i have desktop downstairs router and wireless router upstairs and i want to use my desktop to bridge the internet to a hub so from that hub i can use wired net?

Thanks in advance,

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

You don't specify the model of your router. If it's the ubiquitous WRT54 have you considered an alternate firmware like DD-WRT or Tomato? Both have wireless bridge support.
