    ganging routers

    I have a Linksys wired router and a Netgear wireless router. The Linksys is connected to a DSL modem. Is there a way of connecting the wireless modem to the wired modem so that I can use my wireless stuff (laptop, handheld, etc.) to get online?

    Only if the OEM says that it can be used as a "Wireless Entry Point". Should be in the instructions.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    In theory you should be able to connect the Ethernet port of your wireless router to one of the inputs on the other router. Have you tried to do this yet? If so then tell us what happened and also the EXACT model numbers you have and we can try to help.

    This Linksys article give instructions on connecting a wired and a wireless router (both Linksys). Don't know if this would work with different brands.
