    All I want to do is in addition to my Verizon router set up a repeater downstairs using an old school linksys router I had laying around.why is it such a pain in the nuts. I'm not a computer expert but I usually don't have issues with these things usually. Every guide online over simplifies it or just doesn't work. Number one my IP address takes me to my Verizon router software which I hate but with the router connected via Ethernet it doesn't give me the option someone who has done this please a bit of help please.

    If you want to add the Linksys as a 2nd wireless node on an existing network, you need to turn off the router feature in it (i.e. turn it into a Wireless Access Point instead of a router). What is the model number & version?
