I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Is the signal too weak?
You could use the router to extend the range with the proper configuration. Either that, or purchase a wireless extender that does just that.
You won't get a stronger signal. A router does not boost a signal. It can pick up the signal and rebroadcast it using a different IP.

its not to hard if you have a physical ethernet cord from point A to point B

Modem/Router ---ethernet cable--> 2nd router with dhcp off

as a bonus if you use the EXACT same SSID and password your wireless device will rome with no downtime switching networks
(oh.. very important to make certain they don't have the same IP. if main 1 is 192.168.1.1 then set the second to 192.168.1.2)

ta-da twice the network but all your devices think its all one

I need to increase the range of my wifi signal to cover my small motel. I have a westell 7500, what router would I need to purchase to add to thisto make the signal reach further? I called Verizon and...


Verizon can only support from the telephone-pole across the telephone-wire to your DSL-modem; any "customer-provided-equipment" is not their problem.

LINKSYS (now CISCO) is the "market-leader" in the wireless-router business. Look at their "Wireless N" routers, and look for "extended range". It should be well under $100.

We currently have our wireless internet through Century Link. We are renting a Westell 7500 router from Century Link. We want to purchase our own router ( preferably the same exact router we are renting)....


The Westell 7500 is not just a router. It's a gateway (for DSL), a 4 port LAN (wired network), wireless router and can be made into a bridge, for use with a router of your choice.
It's my understanding there are modem/routers out now and you would simply set them up with the settings found in the Westell.

Do i need a wireless router if i have westell 6100f


Yes. The Westell 6100f is not a wireless modem, therefore, you will need to get a wireless router to connect wireless computers.

Or if your ISP is Verizon and you want a wireless modem/router, you may contact them and replace the Westell 6100f with a Westell Versalink 327w, or Westell 7500, or an Actiontec.

Hope this helps!

I need to know the best router/modem combo to buy


Order the Westell 7500 from Verizon. May not be the best, but your love will be easier because it eliminates a device by providing a single gateway / combo modem router.
Speed issues are ambiguos. Call Verizon and have them take you through some slow speed troublshooting.

Connecting new Linksys WRT160n to existing modem Westell 7500


You have to call your internet provider and ask them to help you put the Westell modem in "Bridged ethernet" mode. This will by-pass the Westell modem and use your linksys as the wireless.
