The garage I'd house it in is detached from house and I already have a conduit to it under the patio

I have a spare crappy linksys router. The N-120 I think. It's nearly worthless crap but it might work ok for the yard. I won't care if I hit it with paint overspray or it gets covered in saw dust
I hate the router so much I am almost hesitant to use it, but since it's free I guess I could. But please no one ever try to use one, it's really quite crappy.
So my question is now how would I wire it up ? What settings ?

Very true. But this is in reference to him being a total jackass to someone in the DIY forums saying they had no business buildng a sub if they couldn't cut a perfectly straight board.
Point is, he's a hypocrite and now he's started his spamming in DIY and the whole reason I left this HTPC forum is because i was tired of his lies and bullying people with his opinion. Hearing him tell everybody they were wrong for not buying Seagate. Shoving his oinion down everyone's throat in every HDD thread and his general egotistical attitude. Even caught him flat out lying about research data and saying something was a fact when reports shown otherwise. At least he admitted to it.
He conveniently edited out his comments after he got called on it.
People need to learn from their mistakes and educate themselves, but some people like to pass themselves off as know-it-all and holier than thou.
The mods let it slide, but it ruins the forums for myself and others who just want friendly help. Its a no nwin situation.
Now he's in the DIY forums with 5-6 idiotic post and saying **** like that. Whatever.

I think I have a basic idea I am just wondering if there is anything different wiring up a second one as opposed to setting up the first which I have done many times. Should I make an entirely new network ID an all that and run a totally new network ? I need help game planning this, I generally hate networking and wifi it's totally the one area of PC's I dislike and avoid when I can.

I have nothing more to say to you. Most people here know your tactics and I just think its pathetic.
Enjoy your evening. I said my peace.

I'm doing this with a netgear router, but it has an Acccess Point mode. I don't think the linksys 120n does. I didn't see anything about an AP mode in the manual.
It doesn't look like it will support a custom DD-WRT firmware flash, so unfortunately that won't be an option. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#Linksys_.28a_devision_of_Belkin_-_formerly_Cisco.29
Try this http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/38087-43-configure-linksys-router-wtr120n-access-point .
You'll basically disable any routing functions. You may be able to use the same network SSID, but it may be better to just use a new one like "back yard" or "garage". Note that you may need to connect to a LAN port on the 120n, and not the Internet or WAN port.
Be sure to do some additional reading to make sure you've got the security settings correct so you aren't opening up the whole network.
