I have a question that hopefully one you gurus can answer for me. I have a Westell wireless router serving a small office area (5 laptops) and a cable running from that router to another office a few floors above - out of range of the wireless transmission. When I connect that cable to my laptop or any other laptop I have full access when I connect a wireless router to that cable I have no internet access. I've tried an old trend micro wireless router, a netgear WGR614v5 wireless router, and a Linksys WRT54Gv2 wireless router and get nothing.
Is the setup I'm attempting possible? Could there be a setting on the "main" router that needs to change? Is there another piece of equipment I need? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
