    i have a Cisco wireless router/cable modem
    i also have a SMC Barricade SMC7004VWBR wireless router

    i want to connect the SMC router to the Cisco router via wireless - can this be done?
    if so, how?

    the SMC has a WAN ethernet port and if i plug in a cable from the cisco, everything works fine
    i can not find anywhere in the setup of the SMC an option for a wireless WAN connection
    is the wireless only for the LAN side?

    if anyone knows something about this any input would be appreciated

    [​IMG] and welcome to the Forum

    Does the SMC have a setting to act as a bridge or client?
