Hi, I have a modem that is conected to the internet. To this modem a Zcomax router a linked a cable in order to transmit wireless internet and it is working fine. Now I want to catch the signal of Zcomax by a linksys wap54g in order to have access to the internet via a cable to a PC. The Zcomax is protected by 5 characters password. What should I do to allow linksys to give internet to my PC?

There is no need for a second router. Run the cable to the first router.

Do you think that if I have the posibility to do so I would be asking the question? I have about 500m seperating the PC from the router zcomax

You are asking about wireless bridging or wireless extenders. At 500 meters I don't believe you can accomplish that with your equipment. The routers would also have to support wireless bridging and most don't without modifications.

Google ddwrt for more info.

Linksys is getting the signal from ZcOmax but I'm unable to get
access to the internet throught it. And yes the linksys support
bridging.

Wanderer is correct. At 500 meters, you don't stand a chance. Even if it connects, the signal will be worthless.
