multi routers on network

Specs: Windows XP
hi, I have read your article on 1 or more routers on same network but not getting the answer to what I want to achieve.
I have router 1 (billion and 2 computers connected ( and with wireless activated.
I would like to add a second router (netgear to the same network and activate the wireless so as to increase the range of the wireless.
the wireless is setup with same SSID and same password but on different channels.
Can this setup be done? i have tried but having trouble setting up router 2 to ip 192.168.1.xx

First you said that router 2 was going to be
Then you said you have trouble keeping router 2 to 192.168.1.x

Either way, why do you think it would increase the wireless range? How far is one from the other? For a small network like that, 2 routers are more trouble than they are worth.

the default ip for router 2 is but I have trouble changing it to be in the same subnet if thats what you call it of 192.168.1.x, it states something about the not in the range.
And the distance between the two is not great but to access from the other side of the house with the second router in the middle would then work.

My guide gives example IP addresses. You're not expected to change yours to match.

If your existing router's LAN IP is then make the second router's LAN IP or any other IP address that is outside the DHCP scope defined on your first router.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
