    Hi guys, I need advices here.

    I just bought a new TV and a new DVD that can access the Internet for interactive stuff. But for that, I need a specific wireless key from the manufacturers or a LAN connection. I don't want to buy the wireless key but I want to use the LAN connections (1 for the TV and 1 for the DVD). Unfortunaly, I don't want to pass a cable all over my house just to link those new devices to the Internet.

    Since I have two wireless routers, I was wondering if I could "wirelessly" link my routers to save cable. All my "ordinary" stuff will still be connected to my main router.

    Here is what I plan to do:
    Connect my modem to my main router (WRT610 v2).
    Wirelessly link my secondary router (WRT54G v3) to my main router (WRT610 v2). [this is where I need help]
    Connect both TV and DVD by wire to my secondary router.

    I hope you can help me with this...

    Thanks guys!

    After some research I found "DD-WRT" was the key and I had to use the "Client Bridge" mode.

    Everything works perfectly!
