Hello, I'm away from my home and I have a quick question. If I have a PC connected to a wireless network that I do not have access to physically via an antenna and an old linksys router, is there a way to extend that wireless signal using the router I have? If so, how?

It is possible to extend signal via a router but not all router support this. You have to use the bridge mode. What router do you have?

There exists a number of range extending and repeating solutions. The first question to make everything easier - are you able to run a wire from the router to a better location? Secondly, are you in the same electrical loop? Thirdly, do you have open access to the router to set this up?

I have no access to the router with the access to the internet. None whatsoever. It is in a different building. I receive the connection by an antenna attached to the PC and would like to use the free Ethernet port to hook up the second router to the network and broadcast a wireless signal that routes back to the first, functioning, network.
