Ok i have one adsl router and a wireless router i have a firewall plugged into the adsl router to filter out things before it gets to my wireless router i want to know is it possible for me to have the two routers act as one whole network? So i can use the open ports on the first router?

Kind of like double filtering almost. But that may cause network congestion if his network is a large one. All that processing I mean.

Hmm.

If a "whole network" means "one network" in your question, then I don't see why not. As long as you're using proper addressing schemes the network should function properly as a whole. Also it may help to check the firewall to see if it's compatible with your wireless router; standards and all.

Creating a Access Point ( adsl and wireless router)

It is possible to do that but if your wireless router allows a Virus in your DSL isn't going to stop it. It is up to the Anti-Virus Program to do that.

Make the wireless router a wap instead?

by IcebergTitanic In reply to Local Area Network

If you're talking an off-the-shelf wireless router like one of those Linksys "bluebox" ones, you might try just quickly turning it into a WAP instead of a router. The quickest way to do this is to hook your network uplink to one of the LAN ports on the wireless router instead of the WAN port. Then the wireless router will just act like a WAP instead. We had to do this at a client site when their onsite "technician" found a deal on wireless routers and installed a dozen of them all over the place.
