Use ActionTec MI424 as Bridge

Message 1 of 5

I'm trying to boost my wireless signal in a remote part of my house.  I am looking to use my old MI424 Router as a bridge.  I just upgraded to the FiOS GigE Wireless "N" Router.  Has Anyone done this?

At the end of it all, does the Bridge Router need to be connected with a Coax or LAN in order for this to work?  I'm planning to put it in a different room away from the primary router.

should be a coax connection to deliver the internet to the router.

Coax worked great.  Directions worked as advertised.  Thanks everyone.
