Connect one router to another wirelessly

I use Dish network as my satellite subscription. The DVR has a network port and has the ability to connect to the internet via broadband router. I don't want to string cable from my living room to my office where my WRT54G router is. I have a Vista machine and an OS X machine wired to it and there are two laptops (one Vista, one OS X) that I use with the router wirelessly.
I'm considering getting another router or something to connect to the DVR that I can use wirelessly with the primary router. Is this doable? Any suggestions on equipment or how-tos?

Re: Connect one router to another wirelessly

you can use a router only if it supports WDS. but i think all you need is a wireless network bridge so you wont have to wire your DVR to the router
it is EVIL enough for GOOD men do NOTHING.

You can buy a WGA54G or WET54G to connect DVR wirelessly to the router.
