I have a WRVS4400N v2 acting as a gateway connected to a cable modem and am interested in extending it's range by placing a WAP4410N elsewhere in the building to cover a deadspot. Is there a mode on the WAP to best achieve this (e.g., wireless repeater, bridge, etc.)? I had assumed that it would be the wireless client/repeater mode, but the thread below leads me to believe otherwise, but is not labeled as resolved.
As a different approach, could I extend the range of the original gateway WRVS4400N by dropping a second WRVS4400N in the deadspot and setting it to router mode? Language in the WRVS4400N v2 administrator screens lead me to believe that I could try this but I am unclear as to whether it would work wirelessly or need to be connected to the gateway via an ethernet cable, which is what I am trying to avoid.
