Hello All,

I have a Linksys WRTSL54GS Wireless Router connected to my cable internet provider , and mainly acting as an Access Point, since the internal DHCP of this router is disabled.

I have a second Linksys WAP4400N Access Point , which I want to use as a repeater/amplifier to extend the range of my existing wireless network and get a better signal coverage. How would it work.?

I just want to understand the settings I have to make on the Router or the Access Point or both to achieve this. Do i simply have to configure the same SSID and Wireless channel on the access point to match whatever is configured on my router.

Any other specific parameters and details would be highly appreciated.
