Hi,

 

     I like to know that if WRT120N is used as wireless bridge. I already have a WRT120N router. I want to use my other computer which is on my other room through Eathernet. So is it possible if I buy another WRT120N and the 2nd one able to received the signal from the first one?

 

Please reply if you dont understand my question properly.

No. You need to buy a wireless bridge not a wireless router.

Unfortunately, WRT120N doesn't have a WDS option to become a wireless bridge. Although there are some 3rd party firmware that adds wireless bridge option to routers such as DD-WRT.

There's always an option though. You need to buy a router with wireless repeater option or "AP + client mode" configuration.

Ya know that DD-WRT. WRT120N not supported yet.

Hmm so its mean there is no easy solution other than home-plug.

Considering another brand will do. There are cheap routers out there with wireless repeater or access point client mode.
