I have a tv which supports DLNA and I'd like to connect it to my PC so I could stream movies to it. However, I can't use a cable because the PC and it's router are too faraway. Therefore, I was thinking of getting the tv its own router, but I don't understand how to configure the routers to talk to each other.

Is it even possible?

What TV do you have? – James Oct 18 '12 at 14:49
James, I've got a 42 inch LG ls460y. Does it somehow make my life easier with this DLNA stuff? – yonile Oct 18 '12 at 17:27
By saying "too far away", does that mean more than 100 meters? Or you just don't have a way to connect because of physical obstructions? – h0tw1r3 Oct 18 '12 at 20:42
No, it's not that far away, I just don't want (and can't) that network cable running on the walls. That's why I thought that connecting the TV to my PC with wireless could be a good solution. – yonile Oct 19 '12 at 21:05

I would suggest using a switch to extend the network to your TV.

If you must use another router (you have one laying around), set it up in bridge mode (turn off routing/dhcp services) and just use the ethernet switch ports (ignore the gateway port).

I second the notion on using bridged mode. – UtahJarhead Oct 18 '12 at 15:05
Sorry, I don't get it. Can you please elaborate? Where exactly do I place the switch? – yonile Oct 18 '12 at 17:34
