  1. Can Routers connect to another router like a USB adapter can?
    I don't have a broadband connection, but I am in to modding, and it would be easier for me to do what I want to do to a router than a tiny USB adapter.
    So can I get wireless internet from a router by connecting to another wireless AP?

    yes ,but it will be slow
    make the wired router a bridge or a switch
    disable dhcp and use a dif ip address for 2nd router don't use the WAN link on 2nd router
    not to clear as to config you plan
    modem to wireless then cable to wired router???
    make sure the modem is not a router in itself this will lead to config errors

    Only some routers have the wireless extender capability and I'm not too sure about security. You may be better off with a real access point or a dedicated wireless extender.
