Just to not clog up Ken's thread too much I figured I'd make a new one. My existing router is a linksys and these are the instructions on setting it up as an "access point":
So this router calls it "bridge mode" and not "access point". In the other thread someone said if it is AP mode you make the SSIDs the same on the main router and the AP but in this case it says to make them different.
The wireless network name (SSID) for each router must be different to avoid conflict for devices which will connect to the wireless network. For instructions on how to set up the wireless network of each router, click here.
So what is this "bridge mode"? It seems like I'm just adding an additional network and not an AP but the article says at the top that is not what I'm doing.
