hi guys. i have a belkin router f6d3230-4 basicly what im trying to do is use it to connect to another wireless router well thats what i want to do

the current firmware does not let me do so.

i know you can get open sorce stuff to do i and have done so in the past with other routers however this router is a bit of a lemon thought it was good at the time b4 i got to know the ins and outs.

i have searched google with no luck. if any body has a spare two minutes to point me in the correct direction of anything they think will work i woudl apreaciate it.

the model is belkin f6d3230-4 version 1000au fcc pd5e804wag

its a A + G router does not do ADSL or anythign

basicly what i wana do is hook an xbox to it then bridge it to another router via wireless. trying to save my self $200 odd dollars by not having to buy a M$ adapter well its for a friends brother realy thanks for any input anyquestion or if i have missed anthing out let me know

sorry for any bad gramer in advanced have had a couple of burbons and just want it posted swt

If there is no WDS on the routers stock firmware and its not supported by openwrt or ddwrt then you are out of luck.

There are cheaper wireless client devices - linksys do one designed for their voip phones but will work with anything once set up. These are clients that do mac address spoofing so not all broadcast stuff works thru them, had no end of problems with upnp to a TV thru one, went away when changing to a proper bridged client (wrt54gs with openwrt on it)
