Simple as connecting to the other network by inputing the key. You will then pick up an IP address from the other router.

I have a wireless network setup, via a wireless router.

 

Is there any way of connecting another wireless router of my friend's so we can access each others network. Mostly for gaming reasons?

 

How come you're only showing up as a registered user? (If it's not rude to ask anyway.)

I just found an option to connect 2 routers together to extend the service area. :D

 

Sorted. Wonder if it works now ;)

 

It tends to be manufacturer specific. You may be lucky, you may not. I know that Buffalo does it. You would probably also need to route between the two networks rather than bridge and you should also check which address ranges you're using - most of them default to the same and that could screw stuff up !
