Hi can someone please help me with my problem.
I have a wireless router (Netgear) at one corner of my house. Each host on my private network talks to the router directly and can connect to the Internet independently. I want to expand its signal coverage by adding a wirless access point (A D-Link wireless router). The thing is I want the access point and the wirless router to communicate wirelessly. The D-Link and Netgear are somewhat within line-of-sight. Is this possible? I have done everyting else correctly. I am familiar with NAT and have configured the D-Link in the following way
1. Disabled DHCP
2. Left the WAN fields blank
3. Entered values in the LAN fields to match my existing private network
4. Entered the SSID the same as that entered for the Netgear.
I tried doing all this and somehow things got messed up. Laptops on the existing network (with Netgear) could not connect to the Internet etc
Forgive my ignoranc, but is a wireless access point the same thing as a wireless router? (or vice versa)
Not. A wireless access point is really just a network connection, nothing more. A wireless router is a router that also happens to have an access point build in.

I have a BT Voyager Wireless Router & I want to extend the wireless area. I heard Wireless Access Point would help. My questions:
1. Is there any compatibility issue so I have to buy any particular access point or any access point would do the job?
2. What am I supposed to configure at the access point?
3. Will I connect it to any of the 4 ports of the wireless router?
Quick answer would help me a lot.
Hi I have a problem. I have a wifi router that also has ethernet ports. I connected my pc with the router through the ethernet. I connected my laptop to the router through wifi. Can I create a network between these 2? Is it possible?
Sounds to me like you already have :-). Not sure what you're asking.
I bought a Netgear wireless router and connected two computers to it through the cable ports (wired connections) and two more computers are wireless.
The two computers with cables are on the network and can share the printer, but the two wireless computers can't connect to or "see" the network. I ran the wizard and whet through all the troubleshooting steps, but the Local Area Connection is still disabled.
