How do I use my router to connect to another modem wirelessly so that I can use the internet.

My pc has a weak connection but I have a spare router that has a good wireless capability, I want to use it like a virtual router to access the modem upstairs so I can go online.


Strictly speaking this is not Ubuntu related :)

You should be able to use your old router as a bridge repeater . There is a lot of documentation on the net, for instance:

What is Bridging Mode in Wi-Fi Networking?

How to Extend Your Wi-Fi Network With an Old Router

edit: You will notice a speed decrease as when bridged you will use twice the bandwidth.
