I have two wireless routers, but no wireless adapters for my two desktops. I wanted to know if there was a way to have one router connect to the other wireless-ly so that both computers can access the internet (file sharing's not necessary). Is this possible?

So far, the only thing I found with using two routers was to connect the wireless one to the one of the ports on the wired one, then you get a wireless access point (cept the routers were wired and wireless, and it didn't really help me anyway :()

I don't think it can be done with these 2 particular routers, there are some routers out there that can be ran as bridges but niether of these have the software of firmware available to do this from what I could find. I've been trying the same thing with each of these in different cases and no luck on my part.

Hmm I see. Well thanks for letting me know. Guess I'll try and find a nice cheap network adapter then.
