Wireless Network problem


Hi all,

So basically I've got a Sky (Sagem) wireless router down in our lounge (where our telephone point) and it works fine. I've run a long Cat5 cable around the house to our very top (attic) room because the wireless network doesn't stretch to there and I want to use it as an office. Plugging a computer into this works fine. However from my old house I've got a Netgear WGR614 router. I want to plug this router into the cable in my top room, so that I can use the wireless network that it provides.

So I've tried doing this, by plugging the Cat5 cable into the Netgear router in one of the LAN ports and the old Wireless SSID that I had with this router (called Tilly!) has popped up. It seemed to connect ok but I'm not 100% sure because you can still sometimes get coverage from the original network downstairs. When i try to log in to the router ( it brings up the downstairs router settings - no matter what I do (by turning different things on and off) I can't seem to access the settings for the Netgear router. Apparently I have to make some changes to Subnets and turn off DHCP or something to get it configured as a Wireless Access Point for my main Wireless network.

It's all very confusing, and google hasn't really helped. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!
