need help setting up a dual router network

by jerhilton / February 15, 2011 9:42 PM PST

i have verizon DSL. Their newest router, the westell 7500, and their older one, the westell 327w. I want to setup a home network. I have heard there is a way to have these 2 routers connect wirelessly (one threw the other) so that i can hook up direct tv dvr to the internet w/out running a long cable. PLEASE help quickly!

Never heard of such a solution.

Please supply a link to this.

While a WiFi bridge might do this, the dsl routers you have are not ones I've seen used in such a fashion.

But I've don't "do a wifi bridge." I've always bought such or in a few cases enabled such in a few routers that have that feature.

Google or use to search for WIFI BRIDGE.
