I've got a brand new, unopened Belkin N600 DB router (yay 50% off sale), and I can't seem to figure out if I can use it as a repeater. As far as I can tell, it doesn't support DD-WRT or Tomato, but I'm wondering if there may be some way to rig it up to repeat Wifi. Also, I really need to know before I open it, because, being a bit tight on money at the moment, I'll probably sell it if I can't use it as a repeater.
Finally, two caveats:
- I can't use the other wireless router for anything other than broadcasting straight from the modem (parents are paranoid about anything technological).
- I can't run ethernet to the second router due to the layout of the house.
Thanks so much for the help everyone–if I'm being vague, tell me!
EDIT: Also, the manual here is pretty useless on this topic as far as I can tell.
Try this aricle: How to set up a Wireless Bridge between two Belkin routers. Belkin routers had this capability since the software settings changed to bridging.
