Is it possible to convert a DSL modem to an access point in order to extend your network?
I have a Linksys WAG54G-AU on the ground floor apartment and a spare LevelOne WBR-3460B which I hope could be used as an Access Point on the second floor. My goal is to be able to extend and access the network wirlessly, I would prefer to keep the same password and SSID of the existing wireless and use the existing Ethernet cable that is on the third floor, so nothing too fancy, I would also prefer not to mess with other firmware if possible.
Note: The purpose of this is to extend the network from the ground floor to the second floor using an Ethernet cable and the mentioned modems/routers.
P.S.: After some research on the internet I found this post by a guy who said that he managed to do it but had some problems with the wireless of the second modem, I'm not sure what he did...--> http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f135/using-second-dsl-modem-as-access-point-543932.html
