Connecting two wireless routers wirelessly

Hello, I currently have a WRT54G wired to my modem, and my two personal laptops connect wirelessly just fine, but my work laptop doesn't support wireless and sometimes I want to work upstairs so I have to run an ethernet cable up the stairs. I was hoping that I could get another wireless router that would connect (wirelessly) to my existing wireless network, then I could plug my laptop into the second router. I'm hearing terms like access point, and bridge and I am very confused.

  1. most router do not have this option; however, some can use a firmware from DD-WRT to enable this option

    check out their database, nearly all WRT54G can be converted. If you get a new router use that as your main and convert the WRT54G
