can I use my router as an adapter?

I want to use my router as a wireless adapter for my dvr. Can I do this? And if so, how? My primary dsl modem/router is in a seperate room and I really don't want to move it into the living room or buy a gaming adapter for the dvr. Please help.

Using a WRT54G v6.0

Considering you have WRT54G, you may want to explore DD-WRT firmware which can be setup in Client Bridge configuration. I do not believe Linksys firmware supports that configuration.

kirevse is absolutely right, you cannot just use the linksys firmware to establish what you want and you need to import DD-WRT Firmware on your router to establish this...DD-WRT Firmware supports your existing router...
