Find the total resistance(Rt) of the infinite network.

Allright, what we have is an infinite network of resistors which i will try to make a diagram of here :

b--R1--c---R1-----R1-----R1--- so on

..........!..........!..........!

..........!..........!..........!

..........R2.......R2........R2 so on (dots are just space fillers to keep it formatted)

..........!..........!..........!

..........!..........!..........!

a---R1--d---R1-----R1-----R1-- so on

A hint says that because it is infinite the resistance at a point to the right of c and d also has R(t)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

We tried a whole lot of stuff and ended up with a quadratic equation which gave us some ridiculous answer. Also tried brute force and got nowhere. Please help :)
