Can I use a LAN cable into a 2nd wireless router to connect an Xbox360 to my existing wireless network?

I have a wireless ADSL modem/router and want to connect my Xbox360 wirelessly to the network without having to buy the Xbox wireless adapter.

I have a 2nd wireless router/access point and was wondering if I can plug my Xbox360 into this 2nd router using a network cable and somehow link the two wireless networks.

My aim is to get an Internet connection so I can use my Xbox Live account.


If so, then how do I configure the 2 access points to be on the same network?

    No, this will not work without modifications to the 2nd routers firmware. You would have to have a firmware that would allow the 2nd router to become a wds link to the first router (basically the 2nd router becomes an extension of the first). Your best bet is to buy the wireless adapter, or a knock off.
