Hello. My name is ***** ***** I can help you solve your problem. My goal is to provide professional advice and excellent customer service.

JoelK :

I can definitely get your two wireless routers working together, but you have to work with me, because there are various options, depending on your physical layout. Please let me know when you are online and ready to proceed.

JoelK :

You would only use an

JoelK :

If the link between the two routers is an Ethernet cable, the secondary unit would be configured as an AP, and it would provide wireless workstation connectivity. However, if you want to use a wireless link between the two routers, the secondary unit should be configures as a WDS Bridge, which is the ES500 terminology for a Repeater.

JoelK :

If the secondary unit is configured as an Access Point (AP), the link between the two routers must be an Ethernet cable. The primary unit would be configured for Point to Point over Ethernet (PPPoE) and connected to the modem provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Both units would provide wireless workstation connectivity (WiFi).
