Extending range of DLink DIR-615 wireless router


Standard Member

I had a functioning wi-fi home network that supported our two iMacs and four iPod touches. The network consisted of a cable modem and two wireless G Apple Extreme Base Stations (A1034) with the second set up as a wireless bridge to extend the wireless range throughout the house. However as I wanted to upgrade my Mac, I got Virgin to send me a DLink DIR-615 wireless N router with 4 Ethernet ports and now I have a patchy wi-fi network that gives a good reception in 1 room only.

I would appreciate some help as the manual is rather ambiguous and Virgin tech support can't help. Is it possible to use my Apple Base stations to extend the range of the network? If so, can this be done wirelessly? Or, would I need to connect one of my routers to the Dlink by ethernet cable?

Help:lease: I am a just about a novice as far as networking is concerned and it has taken 3 full days to even get as far as managing to get the DLink to connect to the internet.
