    I dont know what this is exactly called, so i will explain.

    My main router that is connected to my adsl2 line is in my cupboard where i have my ps3, desktop(not currently working) and laptop docking station. In my sitting room i have another desktop(currently connected by wifi), blu ray player and soon to be a dreambox.

    What i want to do is use a linksys router i have to connect the devices in the sitting room to and them connect the linksys router to the main one by wireless.

    The main adsl router is a thomson 585(be firmware) and the second router is a linksys wrt54 which i am going to flash dd-wrt firmware onto it.

    This is where i am a bit stuck and wondered if any of you can quickly get me setup rather than trawling through google allday?

    Cheers guys

    This is wireless bridging, you also need to ensure that both devices support it.

    Personally speaking I use two dedicated wireless bridges connected to two switches.
