WN802T access point to N300 Router

So...we have an N300 router and a WN802T access point outputting wireless to our wireless pc..approximately 60 yards away....
I don't understand the use of an access point...
Can I connect the access point to the wireless pc via Ethernet cable to receive a better signal from the router?
And how do I do that?..what access point or router settings do I change?

Right now, I have the access point wired to the router (next to each other)...hoping that the wireless PC 60 yards away will pick up the wireless signal better...

first unless you have clean line a sight 60yd/180ft will be duarable but you will have poor connection

you will need main router output more more will be better.

you need to survey with laptop and if you get poor signal then expect same results with AP as well so you will find out if possible to place where you want

Re: WN802T access point to N300 Router

So...do I wire the access point to the router..or wire the access point to the wireless PC?
Or..should I just get rid of the access point....

second question.. - If I buy something from EnGenuis, do I buy an access pint or a new router?

thanks very much!:):confused:
