    hey all,

    I am having problems getting good wireless network coverage throughout my house mainly because of some thick walls. I purchased a wireless N router in the hope that the extra range would be enough to fix this problem but unfortunetly not. So I now have two routers (a netgear N150 and a Belkin surf N300) I was wondering if anyone could advise me if it is possible to "bridge" these two routers together so i can boost the wireless signal? im not sure if bridge is the correct term to use as i want them both on the same ssid, simply for one wireless router to forward traffic on to the other.

    I have done a bit of googleing but having never doen this beforte im not sure.

    thanks in advance for any replys.

    I think you need two identical routers to do this. Any router I've looked at has that proviso if you want to bridge wirelessly.
