Question about Computers & Internet
Yes you can have the setup in your workgroup in multiple ways.
The logic will be making your new wireless router to act as a wireless booster which will receive the signal from your old wireless Router and then retransmits the signal.But this needs some extra configuration on your new wireless router
1. You have to select the WDS ( wireless Distribution System) mode in the new wireless router.
2. Set the same SSID on the new wireless router.
3. In the new wireless router config page , search for the wireless signals and select your old router from that list.
The WDS mode tells the new wireless router to send/receive the wireless signal to the old wireless router.
Connect your old wireless router LAN interface to a network switch through a CAT5e UTP cable and the new wireless router to another port of the switch (use a cable which can be extended to the other room where you want the new wireless router to be placed).
Configure the same SSID you have set in the old wireless router.
