The following is for cable connection between routers.

Do internet search for "connect one router to another". There's an article in wikihow.com.

You will already have part 1 done with your normal setup.

 

Part 2 is setup for router #2.

- disable dhcp

- assign a new address for #2; say 192.168.1.2.

- set SSID and passkey and channel to same values as #1

 

One more thing on #1. You have to make sure that the ip address of #2 is not handed out by #1.

Check  "Reserve LAN IP Addresses".

You make an entry here to reserve ip address 192.168.1.2 for mac address of #2.

 

Since both SSIDs are same, a wifi device will pass between each coverage area without dropping out.
