Do you mean a Wireless Access Point? But why would you do that when the router already has wireless capabilities.

What is it you are trying to achieve?

Plugging a Wireless Access Point into a Router that already has wireless isnt going to achieve much at all.

What you need is a wireless repeater that is located closer to where you want wi-fi access and that in turn connects to the wireless router.

It needs to be configured separately as you would any other device plugged into the router. It needs to be on a different channel and a different SSID than the router with its own IP address. It needs to be on the same subnet as the router. If you are manually assigning an IP address it needs to be outside of the DHCP scope of the router.

For it to be of any use it needs to be on a long cable taking somewhere nearer to the dead spot.

Assuming the AP is correctly configured and the AP is plugged in to the router. (ie: you've connected the AP via a network cable) then it won't show up as a "wireless client" because it's not a wireless client.

Wireless clients are devices that connect to your wireless network using a wireless network adapter. Things like a laptop, a smartphone, a pad. When you physically connect an AP to the router, it's not a "client" as it's not connected wirelessly to the network, it's connected by a wire.

Make sense?
