    i had a wireless G router and now i got the n for a while. i want to use the old one as a expander. my friend told me you have to have a wire going into it from the N router (the main one) so i did that, but he also told me a seeting you have to change in the settings (192.168.1.1) can anyone tell me what this is? i forgot what he told me, it was like 1 year ago.. i finally ran the wire to do it and cant remember.. thanks

    Will you be running a long cable? (& I'm not even sure if this will work) If the routers are relatively near each other, they will just be covering the same range.
