Hello,
I just purchased a new LCD television samsung lcd 670 series as well as a BlueRay player samsung wdc5500 along with it. I have a network setup in my computer room which consists of a motorola dsl modem connected to a d-link dir655 wireless n router. In my living room is the tv, the blueray player, and an xbox360. I own an extra router, the linksys wrt54gs, which I am wanting to plug these three items into using ethernet cable. I am trying to figure out how to connect the extra router to my current one wirelessly so that all three items in the living room can access the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A wireless connection between the routers will only work if both support WDS -- and are, preferably, of the same brand.

To do the same using an ethernet cable see this: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1080
