router as an access point

Specs: Windows XP
I have a wireless N router hooked up to my cable modem (in the basement) with the wireless turned off and from there a wired network. I want to add wireless, have tried several AP's upstairs and the quality has been worse then turning on the wireless of my router (but still too slow). Can I hook another router upstairs on to my network or will this cause IP or other issues; can one turn the router part off when using a wireless router

I have a router in the cellar & my brother gets wireless on the second floor. You should be able to get a signal. Sometimes, moving it a few feet can make all the difference.

If I weren't so lazy, I would run a cat5 cable & get rid of wireless completely.
