    Post 2 routers to extend range

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a Netgear DGN 2200 router that I use at home for internet access. My pc is connected through ethernet cable and other devices uses the wifi.

    In my room the wifi is signal is not strong so I got another simple wireless router (Netgear WRN612 wifi router). Since a ethernet cable comes to my room, I intend to connect 1 end of cable (that comes from my main router) to the new router, other end to my pc and configure settings so my pc can access internet (ethernet) and I can enable wifi so that network range also gets extended.

    I am struggling to configure the router. I will be glad if anyone can help me.

    Thanks,

    Cheers,
    GR

    "Since a ethernet cable comes to my room" why don't you connect that Ethernet cable directly to your PC?

    For the second router I turned the dhcp off and configured the ip. It started to work.
    @Coochin: I wanted to extend the wifi (not just use my pc thru ethernet cable)
