Hello all, I have a Time Warner cable modem/wireless router in my bedroom that I have hardwired with CAT5E into a 5 port D-Link switch that is located in my living room, Distance is about 25ft. Connected to my D-Link switch with CAT5E is my PS3 and my XBOX-360. In this current configuration it runs flawlessly, wireless connection in the bedroom is perfect since I am only 8-12ft from the router, in the living room the connection is terrible since it is separated by 2 walls. I have the power output of the router at MAX and my one question is. How do I connect a second wireless router in the living room so it's only purpose is to retransmit the wireless signal. Routing and DHCP will be controlled by the router in the bedroom. So I just want to be connected at full power in the bedroom and walk in the living room and still be at full power on the living room router.
