How can I use a wireless router as a wireless network switch? Answered

Hi, So basically we have a Netgear DGN1000 router as our main router and wireless access point although from where my PC is I can't get a very strong signal to the router or the connected airport. I recently picked up a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router to connect wirelessly to the Netgear router so I will be able to connect LAN cables to a switch, then to the TP-Link. There is a bridging system on the TP-Link router configuration although I don't think it's the type of bridging I'm looking for.

Any help will be appreciated, cheers,

Thanks for the help, although I've just finished the network bridge after finding the custom firmware, I came on here to say I didn't need an answer :)

My connections much stronger now (although I still have to endure 150kb/s dl rate of the Great British internet :l )

Thanks again,
