    The title basically says in all.

    I would like to extend my wireless signal by using another wireless router as a booster. Is this possible?

    The current wireless network only reaches half of the house (but every room is wired for internet). I have another wireless router that I want to use on the opposite side of the house to extend the signal (basically a daisy-chain)

    I can't plug in the wireless router to one of the ethernet ports. The problem is that I see two networks: "home" (the one that works) and "default" (the wireless router plugged into the opposite side of the house). Can I make these play together?

    i attempted to try this a while back but I understand that you need to hack the firmware on the device to be able to make this happen or something like that. It turned me off so I never tried

    I would this this would be very similar to daisy chaining additional wired routers together. I've done that before and it's worked fine, but now that it's wireless, I encounter a more difficult challenge...
