    I currently have an iMac (with snow leopard) connected to the internet via wifi from a wireless modem.
    I have an iPod Touch that doesn't get very good reception in the room with the iMac.
    I have a spare wireless router, if I connected the spare router to the iMac's ethernet port could I bridge the airport with the ethernet to get the spare router to broadcast my internet from the iMac.

    Thanks

    I would not do it that way I would see if you can setup the spare router as a wireless distribution point to extend your network.

    Cheers

    Yeah thats what I had planned but unfortunately the main router doesn't support WDS, which is a shame because that would've been perfect.

    I had it set up fine on my old windows computer but that was with a network connection bridge which i have heard isn't supported in Snow Leopard.

    Any Ideas?
