Wireless bridge?

My new router, EA2700 N600 smart wifi linksys router, and it has apparently no wireless range... I can't connect to it in the other rooms, so I reconnected old router and it works. I want to bridge my wrt54g main router to wireless bridge my new ea2700 in my room. Is this possible?

Strange that it's not working, are you sure you haven't shut off the 2.4GHz radio at all?

You can use the old one as a regular access point (and not use the routing features) by making a few changes in the GUI and plugging it into your new router with an Ethernet cable.

Here is a walkthrough:»www.wikihow.com/Convert-Linksys-···ss-Point

In a nutshell you change the IP address of the old WRT54G, disable DHCP on it, and connect it to your new router via a LAN to LAN port connection.
