how to make my router an access point?

[ Edited ]
hello everybody ..
 
I own WAG200G and using it as wireless router at my home for at least 4 computers ..
recently I've bought the WAG160N and would like to make it my router and make my old one "the WAG200G" as an access point to expand the wireless signal, so could anybody help me making my router an access point step by step, please?
 
Another question, why does the download rate after using linksys in torrent programs is so low, and how to increase it, I found bunch of articles around the internet but all of them are useless, is there a way to change the settings in my administrator page to make the torrent download faster?
Also the connection breaks down when im downloading something in utorrent!
 
Thanks in advance.
 
 
regards,

To wire two routers together set it up like this.

If you want to connect both wireless only, then it is not an access point you want but a wireless bridge. The WAG does not support bridging.
