    Is there a way to convert a wireless router to a wireless access

    Our network already has a wireless router connected to a dsl modem on
    the fourth floor. On the first floor, I have a hub connected to this
    router over an ethernet cable snaked between these floors. I want to
    connect a 2nd wireless router to this hub to provide wireless access
    to those who need this.

    Is this doable?

  4. It is only doable if your router has the use as access point option. What is
    the make and model of your router?

    I have a Mecer 4 port cable DSL router from my new ISP and an older ADSL wifi Billion 7401VGP router from my old ISP MWEB, I want a wifi connection but have heard its not possible to crack the MWEB locked wifi router.
