    Hello - I have been trying to figure this out, just getting stumped. I have a SpeedStream 6520 and have DSL, and am wireless through my home to 3 laptops and a wireless printer. No problem there. My daughter is across the street from me, she currently does not have DSL, but still has the modem/router. She also has a SpeedStream 6520. She is able to connect to it locally only of course. Actually, I could connect to it also from my house. What I would like to do is set up my wireless to connect to her SpeedStream as an access point, so that she can get to the Internet also. I have security setup on my computers, so no problem there. So any suggestions on how to do this?

    I don't want her to necessarily connect to my laptops/computers, just be able to connect to the internet.

    So here is the idea:

    Daughters Laptop (wireless) connects to her Speedstream, which in turn connects to my SpeedStream.

    Thanks in advance!:p

    That's not going to work, since that router doesn't have AP capability. You need a real wireless bridge to connect, probably with a directional antenna.
