I am working in a location w/out a wireless signal. I would like to hook up my wireless router to my extra Ethernet port on my CPU and broadcast my own wireless signal to run my tablet/smartphone.

Is this even possible???

Thanks

Yes, just use Window ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). Just patch the router's WAN to the other end of that second ethernet connection.

[primary router]<-- wire -->[pc - ics enabled]<-- wire --(wan)[wireless router]
