Creating Wireless Bridge

Belkin / G+mimo/f5d7230-4
January 22, 2009 at 11:35:26
Specs: Linux i686 / Vista/2000, Pentium / 2gb (vista)
I have two wireless routers one Belkin F5D7230-4 and one newly purchased Belkin G+ Mimo.
The Belkin G+ Mimo is connected to a comcast cable modem and gets assigned dynamic IP, this is in one corner of the house.
I would like to use the other Belkin router F5D7230-4 in my study where the signals are weak and I get intermittent connectivity.
For the purpose I am thinking of creating a wireless bridge or use it as an access point?
I am a totally newbie to networking, so appreciate if anybody can help me out with some step-by-step guide for the purpose.
I would be connecting two computers in my study one running windows 2000 server and the other running linux(Debian Etch) (wired/wireless).

To create a wireless bridge you need routers that support wireless bridging.

I see nothing in either belkin docs that suggest they support this feature.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Infact both the routers support wireless bridging and access point.
I have verified it by logging into the router admin interface there are options there which say use as access point / use as bridge.
So both the routers support these features.
I have no idea how to configure them as wireless bridge or access point.
