Second WRT54GS to expand network

I have a wrt54gs working as a internet router and wireless access point, I have a second wrt54gs, can I use it to expand wireless network coverage?

That is possible but you would need to use a third party firmware like DDWRT. The stock firmware would not work like that since it has no bridging capability.

I know of two ways to do this.

1) Run a wire between the two routers and then you could run two seperate wireless networks.

2) If your routers are Version 4 routers or older, you can run a third party firmware like DD-WRT in repeater mode (WDS).

Hope this helps
