    Hi all,

    Brand new to the forum and the website. I have built a wireless router/access point with linux and now am trying to place my old netgear access point upstairs to give myself better coverage. If I set the two access points to different addresses (192.168.1.1 is my linux router/access point that is NAT to the cable modem and 192.168.1.2 is the upstairs access point), which do I use as a gateway on my windows laptop if I am setting static IP's? I think I need to point it at 1.1, the same as I am pointing 1.2 to 1.1. 1.2 basically just become a radio.
    Does this sound correct?

    I have disabled DHCP on the second router and set it to a different channel (11 vs. 1 - no overlap) with same SSID and password.

    Thanks for reading!
