Router Problems (Not really)

Ok this is what Im trying to accmplish:

I have 2 routers
1. Linksys (WRT54G)
2. DLink (DI-514)
 I want to be able to connect my Linksys router to my Dlink router wirelessly
The DLink router then will be placed into the game room and connected to my xbox

My Linksys is connected to my DSL and is my DHCP
 first of all can this be done? or will i have to buy a Bridge I dont want to get a Wireless game adapter there are not to many good reviews on those.
All I want to do is Play on XBOX Live!

you will need a bridge

sorry, what your asking is out of the scope of your two router/access points.

From my quick search neither of those wireless APs can be put into bridge mode so they cannot talk to each other.  Though, there is alternative firmware for the linksys which loads a version of linux on it, but I'm not sure if any of those has a bridge feature either.

AFAIK, you don't specifically need a "wireless game adapter" you just need any device which can bridge between wired and wireless.

Often you can turn these routers into simple switches/hubs.  Basically turn off DHCP, etc on the d-link router.  Traffic is then just passed though the d-link router to the devices connected to it.  If this can be done to the D-link then you will basically have a hub that connection to the router using wireless.  Both devices will also need to be able to communicate with each other over wireless as well.  If this does not work then you may need to get a bridge.
