Can I add an additional wireless router to my existing wireless network. I have a wireless router in my house with wired connection to my shop about 100 ft away. This works fine, but I have wifi equipment in my shop that I'd like to utilize wirelessly instead of wired. Can I make this work...and if so, how?

It should work without a second router unless there is a lot of cinder blocks or steel in the way.

My shop has steel siding. The signal doesn't reach...also, the wireless router is in the front of the house...complete other end from the shop. I just figured too many walls, and too much distance.

The simple solution here is to install a wireless router in the shop and connect it to the other one in your house with this network cable.
