    Hello,

    I recently bought a new D-Link DIR 615 but I dont get adequate range in the rooms farthest away from the router. I have an old D-Link DIR 634M router which I'm told can be used as a wireless repeater.

    I went through several articles that describe connecting the two routers through a LAN cable. However is there a way to do the same without using a cable of any sorts?

    Thanks!

    In the unlikely case that the old router supports wireless bridge (AP client) or repeater (range extender) mode simply use that mode. You can also look to see if any third party firmware exists for the router (e.g., at DD-WRT).
