    2 routers to increase signal?
    Can I use two routers spread apart at a time connected to the same network that could boost the signal throughout my apartment?

    Fine if they are wireless-bridge mode routers.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Yes.
    First is set up as base and the second extends

    TheEA2700 is not highly rated by users.

    Why not get a Airport Express from Apple to extend the range ?? I have 2 in my house as well as the Modem/Router because of double bricking between Kitchen, where the Router is and my Bedroom, and the bottom Lounge. . . . Work a treat they do.

    Airport Expresses can only extend networks from other Airport products unfortunately.

    Linksys WRT160N bridge/repeater info
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Then why when i set them up through Airport Utility, that i have the option to either, set up as a 'New Network' or 'To extend a already setup Network' ??

    Which router? Which version of Airport Express?
    I don't have the latest gen AE but I have the previous two and neither can extend a non-Apple Airport network

    I read the boosters don't always work so I bought an extended ethernet cable to centralize the signal's location.
