You just need a wireless access point plugged into your extended part of your network. Some wireless routers can be set this way as can some range extenders. I use a D-Link DAP-1650 as wireless access point, though you have to download the full manual to get the instructions for this since it only includes the quick set up guide in printed form which does not include this option. I find that this one works very well, though there are I am sure many that will do the job.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Make and actual models of both routers would be most helpful here; presuming that the "gateway" is of course also a router?

Does the office "gateway/router" have wifi capability?

Also - why the need to connect to the office gateway via wifi; when you have a cat-6 cct. already established. A hard wire (cat-6 in your case) is by far the more stable and faster; and also more secure?

Remember too that distance, and also the nature of any "objects'/structures etc.", between the source (gateway) and your house is a factor in stable/reliable wifi connections...

The set up is Modem in house connected to a Dlink 2482 wireless router in the house with cable going out to office building where gateway is connected I don't believe it is wifi capable. The second wireless router would be a Dlink DIR 655. The gateway is connected to 4 desk stations (wired through the wall). I would just like to have wireless access for cell phones and such. We will be turning the office into a small apartment soon.

Source of your internet is going to be an apartment as in someone else is in control of the space?

I'm a landlord and that is not a situation you want to be in. The internet coming in needs to be coming to a different location that you control.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

It is my daughter so that is not a problem. I will be securing access to the wireless signal.
