Can I use 2 Netgears with WDS to provide a LAN over Wi-Fi.?

Sun Jun 10, 2012 4:07 pm

Ive heard that this is possible, but I cant seem to do it...

I have the following routers:
Netgear DG834GT (DG Team Firmware 1018)
Netgear DG834N (DG Team Firmware 1018) <- main adsl router
Speedtouch 585v6 (i believe this has WDS too)

the Netgears have WDS enabled in the DGT firmware - what Iam trying to do is have my spare 834GT pick up the wifi signal and share it over its LAN out.. this is so I can plug my sky TV box into it for streaming (as the sky box only has LAN in and the ADSL port is in other room)

can this be done? I read somewhere of someone doing it with 2 Netgears but he failed to explain how...
