Router 1 Setup

Make sure it is connected to the internet and setup like you normally have it you need to run RJ45 cable just a standard one from Router 1 to the second router.

Router 2
Disconnect router 1 from pc and connect router 2 to your pc or laptop, you need to login to the router configuration page and disable DHCP, setup your wireless network ect name / password. Save settings

Disconnect From pc and remove and plug the RJ45 cable from router 2 into router 1 this will feed Router 2 with the internet.

router should auto send out the internet with no extra configuring ect., you cant do it using wireless it has to have a RJ45 cable between the two.

you should have two wireless networks in your house add them both to your devices and they will bounce between the two of them :)
