Networking with 2 routers.

Specs: Windows 7
I recently installed Comcast Internet service into my home; however, only half of the house gets wifi because of the concrete and steel beams that reduce the wifi. Therefore, I had an Ethernet cable running from one side of the house to the other (which worked in the past with AT&T). The current problem I have how to bridge the Net Gear router, which connects to the modem, and connect the Linksys router as well. If this is still unclear then I will try my best to reiterate and explain it better.

You need to configure second wireless router as access point only since the first one will act as main router. Check out this configuring wireless router as access point article and configure second router as access point with different SSID, after that should be able to get it works.

Hope this helps.

Wow! this is exactly the solution I needed! I almost was about to give up and buy a second modem.
