Solved Connecting two D-Link wireless routers together wirelessly

Hello everyone,

I have two D-Link wireless routers;

D-Link Wireless N DIR-615 (Using this as my main router at the moment.)

D-Link Wireless G WBR-2310 (A spare I have laying around.)

The 615 is connected to my satellite Internet modem and is currently broadcasting a wireless signal throughout my house, and I was wondering if there was a way I could connect the 2310 to the 615 and plug devices into the 2310, connecting to the Internet through the 615. For example, I have an Xbox 360 that I am too cheap to buy a wireless adapter for, and would like to hook it up to the Internet via a Ethernet cable, however the 615 is too far away to connect it to. Here's a sort of diagram of what I have in mind, if it helps: (--- = Ethernet cable, > = wirelessly connected.)

Xbox 360 --- D-Link WBR-2310 > D-Link DIR-615 --- Satellite modem

Would there be a way to do this with these devices, or will I have to purchase a wireless adapter for the Xbox?

Thanks a ton guys,

Comguy.

Unless the 615 supports wireless bridging you are out of luck

Thanks for the quick reply,

I managed to pick up a wireless adapter for the Xbox from my friend for $20, not to mention I don't think the 615 supports wireless bridging anyways.

Thanks,
