I have a TiVo, PS3, and Wii in the living room that all have wireless built in (with the exception of the TiVo that i added a wifi USB stick).

All the systems have issue with connectivity because the signal in my home is not strong enough.  I wanted to know if i can use my current belkin draft N router as an access point in my living room if i were to buy another N router.

Can i have the belkin magnify the N signal?  Do you think i can have all my devices hardwired into the living room Belkin router and have the router make their signals wireless?
