Default Netgear and Belkin routers

I have a netgear all in one wireless router / modem and a belkin wifi
router (no modem) both have 3 ethernet ports

is it possible to have the netgear downstairs at the master socket where
the telephone line signal is best and use the belkin upstairs to recieve
internet wirelessly from the netgear and distribute on ethernet to 3
PC's upstairs?

There does seem to be a big difference in line quality from room to room

But I've been experimenting today and trying out different things and it
may be due to electrical interferance?

For instance if I locate the Netgear ADSL Router / Modem in my sister's
room it seems fine, but when I start turning on things in her room the
noise db drops .. downstairs there's not much electrical stuff around.

Same in my parents rooms.

Would a better quality telephone cable help? better shielded perhaps?

I know Belkin do some very good quality cables.

Default Netgear and Belkin routers

I've been given another Belkin Router from my friend and it's an all in
one model

I tried this combined ADSL Modem / Router / Wifi Belkin F5D7630

And I seem to be getting much better noise figures

The Netgear was dropping to as low as 1db to 3db upstairs in my bedroom
and disconnecting

with the help of this site I found out the hidden menu that allow you to
see the connection status and it gives the following numbers


I've used the same ADSL Line filter and cable fromthe Netgear and this
gives much better results - does this mean my Netgear may be faulty?

If anyone else is planning to do something similar, I'd suggest they use a
'hosts' entry so they can define the router IP address locally and give any
URLs in the form http://myrouter/page_name.htm

That would allow someone else to define (in their hosts file) the IP for
'myrouter' and not be tied to using (for example :-) Peter
