The best way is to buy an ADSL wireless router and run a cable to the WAN port.
most people will not like to do such thing as it is a pain.

There are two other hardware that can do the JOB. that I tried from experience and work well.

A) the best way to go buy with "NETGEAR WN2000RPT Universal WiFi Range Wireless Network Extender 802.11B/G/N"
you can find it on the net, its very easy to configure just plug it to the electricity and point out the router you want to it to Extend the signal. high recommend.


B) 2nd one is using your power line to transfer the Ethernet connection, I don't remember the model but we use it for our cables.

but go with option A much better.

If you want a wireless A/P don't use one of the combo modem/routers as it most likely will not work right because you would be installing an internet gateway into the middle of your LAN. You certainly don't need two modem's in a basic LAN. There might be a way to make it work but the required settings would be different depending on the hardware being used. In any event you only want one DHCP server in a single network.

You would be better served going with a standard access point plugged into the LAN port of the router or a switch which would be set up in the optimal location to work as an A/P.

Those wireless WiFi range extenders might save you from having to run so much wire but they don't work as well as a wireless A/P plugged into a LAN port.

The netegar WN2000RPT modem is excellent, compare to the other I used in many clients house.

as it is not a "repeater" it is connecting Wireless to your main router ( As a client).
then makes its own signal.

This is excellent equipment for home,
