Help installing wireless routers




I have been using the following setup for a couple of years now without any

Netgear WGT624 V2 (Wireless)

IN WLAN Cable modem
OUT LAN to XP box
OUT LAN to wired hub (see below)

WIRED LINKSYS 10/100 16 port
IN FROM Netgear above
OUT LAN to other XP boxes

I also have a Compex Netpassage 16 which has wireless and 4 hard ports.

I want to be able to use my laptop wireless which is quite away from the
Netgear wireless but close enough to one of the XP boxes (say box 2) which is
fed from the wired hub.

What is my best way to do this? Can I feed the cable from box 2 into the Compex
then out of the compex to the wired hub?

Would I then be able to get a signal from my LAN to the laptop?

Sorry if this is confusing.. :)

Take the wire out of the PC and plug it to a wire port on the Compex, plug
the PC to another port on the Compex.
Configure the Compex as a Switch with an Access point.
