    Hi. I am somewhat a noob at this networking thing. I have configured networks for my internet before but I also had instructions to help me with the web interface. My question is about creating a repeater bridge making the host router providing the internet without a computer connected to it through an ethernet cable permanently. Is this possible to make it work? My scenario is that I use this computer in room A with it wired to the router because I am unable to get a strong signal wirelessly, even with the computer right next to the router that is wired straight to the cable internet modem. I want to move this computer into room B and make a repeater bridge with a separate router, wiring the secondary router into my computer. I don't whether or not I need to have a computer connected to the primary router permanently in order for a repeater bridge to work. My guess is no. If not, do I need a specific configuration made in the web interface to the primary router before I head over to room B? My problem is that I am envisioning a router that has no specific parameters on how to send the wireless signal to the secondary router. I have instructions on how to configure a repeater bridge, I just need to know what I have to do to the primary router before I can make it work.
