    Hello.

    Is it possible to use an inactive (in storage) over five/5 years old
    Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G 54Mbps router v1.1 to connect to an active
    Netgear R6300 router in terms of wireless network? I am trying to see if
    I could use it to expand the wireless network, no network cables, since
    some far away areas have weak spots. Both of these routers currently
    have their (lat/new)est) stock firmwares. If it is possible, then how do
    I do that? I hope it's easy.

    Thank you in advance. :)

    Is it possible to use an inactive (in storage) over five/5 years old
    Thanks, so I can't use stock firmwares. Is it easy to do and connect?

    No, stock wont do it ;-)

    Is easy to do if you follow the guide on DD-wrt.com

    If any problems, i will help you set it up. DD-wrt on that router makes
    it the time worth.

    Sorry for my english, it is not my first launguage and i have a great
    deal of pain for the time being ;-)

    Simply follow the guide at dd-wrt.com. Shouldn't be that hard.
