    I have a problem at work here that i cant get my head around.

    Im trying to bridge from wireless signal that is given from a cisco access point. The cisco is giving the signal over a certain distance then i want another access point that picks up this signal and allows me connect a hub to it so that i can give ethernet connections to clients that come off from the bridge.

    Is this possible to do with a netgear WPN802 access point or do i specifically need to buy a wireless bridge to connect two access points together wirelessly.

    Will i be able to boost the signal wirelessly with the WPN802 netgear AP from the cisco if bridgeing is not an option?


    Cheers.

    I'd say you need a bridge to do this
