I'm slowly refitting an older PC as an Ubuntu media / file server. I had a PCI wireless card in the PC but it has since gone away. I do have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router with 4 ports. Silly question is, can I use the 524 to connect to the wireless network in my house, routed via a D-Link DIR-628?

The two routers should be able to talk via wireless if they both support WDS. But whether you can plug a computer into the second one via ethernet is an unusual question because mostly people do this to boost wireless range.
I guess it's worth a try but as wireless adapters are cheap, may not be worth the hassle.
