Need help networking 2 wireless routers

  1. If anyone could help that would be great as I seem to be hitting brick wall after brick wall.

    At the moment I have 1 ADLS Modem Wirekess router, my laptop and PC access the internet from this using wireless. The router is downstairs next to the telephone line.

    I wish to bring in a second wireless modem router, only to use the router side not the modem. I want this to sit up stairs and supply my console with a link to the internet. I want to have a short cat-5 cable go from this second router to the console. I want the router downstairs to feed the upstairs router the web connection through wireless.

    Can someone explain how and if this can be done.

    Many many thanks in advance
