Hi,
I have my main pc downstairs connected to a D-LINK ( DIR-615 ) wireless router via ethernet cable,
I also have two laptops and other devices connecting to the D-LINK with no problem.

I now have 2 PCs upstairs which I dont want to use wirless connections but rather wired via ethernet, primarily for LAN.

Ive just found my Belklin Wireless G router F5D7230 (which has a WAP option) in the basement and was wondering if I could connect the 2 PC's
upstairs via ethernet cable to the Belkin F5D7230 router, and have the router connect to my D-LINK downstairs wirelessly ?

Just saves me drilling a hole in the ceiling for ethernet cables :) 

Thanks

In order for wireless routers to connect wirelessly to each other both need to support WDS (and to be safe both be of the same brand).
