Not entirely true. I'm using bridge mode on my 2nd floor Lynksis router to maintain the same subnet being dished out by my basement located ISP provided router/modem. I wasn't getting a good signal on other floors from my basement utility room. It just took some digging in Google to find how to set it up appropriately.



Hence , the sentence, " If you need to extend or go wireless from the router to another you need a bridge or extender."
Same, thing just your buying a router and converting it, switching it's options to a Bridge. Whynot just pay leas and buy the bridge in 5ghz


Nope.
My basement wifi router is feeding my second floor wifi router via wireless just fine. There is no bridge required in the middle. In my case "bridging" refers to the feature that allows the passthrough of DHCP from the original router and all devices are on the same network.

I realize you are speaking of a different thing. A bridge to connect two routers. However, your first sentence said in a blanket statement that a router can't go to another router wirelessly and that is just not true.

I just didn't want him to think his options were limited.

Why am I using a more expensive router instead of a bridge? Because I needed to extend the signal up to the third floor and I already owned it, thus making it the cheaper solution.

I am thinking about getting the one below in the link from Monoprice in Feb $42 bucks only, and upgrade from the Netgear RangeMax WPN824v2 i have now that is 8 years old. What do you think about it? I am using a Motorola SB5101 N Surfboard Modem is this going to be a problem for the Monoprice Router? My modem handles 38 Mbps Download and 30 Mbps upstream. My speed is like 18 Mpbs down and I think like 4-5 Mpbs upload from Charter Cable. I need to test it and see the speed to be sure. I dont want to be a guinea pig with Monoprice has been good to me and should stand behind the product. My router has been dropping alot lately and there is some many more devices running wirelessly on my router now it is crazy. I think it is slowing things down. What are your thoughts?

Me either.
I tend to stick with good brands and good reviews. Too many times friends have opted for cheaper computer parts and they paid for what they got; lesser quality/features they didn't realize they would want or need, lesser performance or shorter equipment life.

I got this Medialink wireless router last September, for $50, to extend my wireless network. Very popular on Amazon (4520 reviews). Works fine for me.

Finally upgrade to the Netgear R6300. I love it so far. Nice interface and strong signal. Real fast speeds.

That's the one I ended up with when my D-Link started giving me wireless grief. It seems to be doing well so far. Did you end up with the v2 with the USB 3.0 port? Mine ended up being v1, so only USB 2.0.

As a fan of DD-WRT and Tomato firmware replacements for routers, I always look for something I can flash that on. I'm currently using ASUS routers (right now my main router is a RT-N66U). I needed something with QoS support so I can carve off some dedicated bandwidth for my VoiP phone. I'm using the Tomato firmware with this and it's extension companion (an ASUS RT-N16).

The Tomato firmware is incredibly flexible. Far superior to anything I've seen in a commercial home router. I have it set up for dynamic DNS and have an Open VPN server on it so I can get home when abroad.
