I just bought a Sony Blu-Ray with streaming video via internet. I have a Belkin Wireless N router in my office upstairs with no way to hard wire the blu-ray. I have a D-Link 614(?) wireless g and want to turn it into an access point/bridge for the blue ray.

I'm pretty savvy when it comes to computers and I've read several articles that have left me scratching my head.

Some help please to assist me in not losing any more hair than I already have.

The D-Link 614 can only be used as access point.
So hopefully your Belkin Wireless N router supports repeater mode.
In repeater mode, the Belkin router connects to the D-Link router as a client, just like a notebook would do. But we talk about repeater mode, that means, you can also connect to that Belkin router wirelessly. The Belkin extends the wireless network of the D-Link router.

Last case might be to try openwrt or dd-wrt if they are supported.
