No. The access point can't connect to another wireless network because it is designed to broadcast a network, not receive from another router. Your best bet would probably be to go and buy a wireless network card, about $20 where I live or just to run a cable. (This is very expensive, here is is about $25 for a 10 ft).

No, in order to connect to a wireless network you need a wireless adapter. You can get wireless adapters for almost any port, USB, PCI, PCI-e...
