    I am planning on having a lan party in a couple of days and I don't have a ethernet cord thats long enough to reach the garage. What i want to do is setup another router in the garage thats connected to another router that is connected to the cable modem in another room via ethernet cord.

    What i want to do is have the main router in the room that has the cable modem in it. That router already has a laptop connected to it wirlessly + a Playstation 3 and another computer thats connected through a ethernet Cord. Now I want the second router to be in the garage connected to the main router by using the wireless features of the routers since i don't have a cable thats long enough for it to reach the garage. Both Routers are Linksys WRT54G. If anyone can teach me how to make this happen it would be most appriciated. Thanks in advance.

    Check this HowTo here
    That is exactly what you want. You just need to change the firmware of both routers.
    But i think it's possible to do it with original Linksys firmware.
