Specs: Windows Vista
I have a g band network in my home. I want to
get internet to my living room entertainment
center. There is wireless signal available. I
want to receive the wireless signal and send it
wired to 3 devices. I have tried to get my
linksys wrt110 to act as an access point but
to no avail. I have a netgear g band router and
had it configured for multiple access points (i
think) I input the mac address of the wrt in the
linksys but cant figure out the settings in the
wrt. ANY help would be appreciated. If you know a different way to do what i want for a reasonable amount of money let me know about that as well. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. I want my BLU RAY and Satellite receiver hooked up to the internet and I've been at it for weeks. Please help me!

You have to clear up several things.
What routers are you using exactly (model number)?
Which of the routers is connected to the Internet?
Which router is placed in your living room?

I guess, you'd like to connect both routers wirelessly, right?

So at the master router, the one, directly connected to the internet, you have to configure either WDS or normal router funktion.
I would suggest to use it as a normal router, if the other router supports repeater mode.
In repeater mode, the router connects just like a computer to the master router but allows you, to connect also wirelessly to the second router.
Also wired connected devices will be forwarded to the master router to access the internet.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

im using a netgear wgr614 as my main router. The linksys
was just given to me. it is a wrt110 this would be the access
point or maybe i could use the wrt as main router and netgear
as access? my setup would be modem wired to voip box wired to wireless router. Upstairs i want to use another router as an access point to
receive wireless signal then send 3 wired connections from the access point to xbox, satellite receiver, and blu ray.

Access points are wired to the router. They are an extension of the router wirelessly. What you want is a wireless bridge.

My question would then be could i use one of these routers
(wrt110 or netgear as main router and then use the other as
access point and then how to set it up.
