I've just moved into a new house and it's 2-storys. There's a modem upstairs provided by the ISP which has been internally wired (through the walls) to various ports around the house. Is there any way that 2 routers at these ports can extend the range of the same wireless access point, rather than distribute 2 different access points? I know the case is usually to wire the repeating router to the first one, but in this case they're not directly connected except by having a common modem. I'm also not looking for a solution wherein the second router wirelessly connects to the first access point to extend it; the signal down here is really weak and that's bound to lead to tons of latency. How do most 2 story houses accomplish this? I refuse to believe most people actually have hideous wires running downstairs. I'm a techie in most aspects but I'm afraid networking isn't one of them.
