Connect Linksys WRT160N & Dlink WBR-1310 wirelessly

I have 2 routers and hate wires! The main router connected to the internet is the Linksys WRT 160N which runs the bulk of the wireless devices in my house. I just got bought a new computer which is in a different room and do not want to run a 100' wire to reach the area... I have a extra router kicking around the Dlink WBR-1310 and I want to connect the two routers in two different rooms, wireless. Is there a way that this could be done? I found a way that I could do it with a wire, but if I am going to run a wire, then I mines well just put it into the computer, But not what I want.....

  1. the WBR-1310 is not capable what you like it to do.

    get another router or repeater that supports N-network and WPA2.

    before you buy a router check if it supports bridging or DD-WRT firmware.

    See your point, but connecting the routers by a short wire would still increase wireless footprint. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1080
