    I don't think those two can be configured to work that way.

    I don't think you can because their not meant to act like that. some enterprise class wifi access points can do that though. you may want to try ddwrt it is an open source router firmware that you can flash onto many routers.

    thank you for the reply,, i searching about dd-wrt firmware i found out, that it has a supported list of routers that can be compatible with this firmware. unfortunately my router doesn't exist on that list..:( so i gonna buy a new ones..

    another question, if your going to setup a wireless bridge connection into a router, is that supposed to be the same unit and model? and how many routers i need to setup for a wireless bridge connection?

    thank you..

    I think he wants to use 1 modem as a WAP and the other as a wifi interface to a smart tv :D
