      Using a belkin router as an access point

      Hi, i wonder if anyone can help i use the sky router downstairs for everything but my xbox360 upstairs has very poor signal strength, i had the same problem when i was with bt but i always moved the router into a better position when i wasnt using the computer online, i did this with the sky router and it broke after being moved a couple of times, i really dont want to move it agin and spend the hassle of getting a new one (4 weeks it took). I want my set up something like this:
      `````````````````````(Wireless)
      Internet-----Sky Router)))))))))Belkin Router---)))Xbox 360
      `````````````````|
      ``````````````Computer
      Both my computer and xbox can be connected wired or wirlessly but not the the same router. I know this is really complicated but any help would be appreciated.

      Re: Using a belkin router as an access point

      yes i use an ethernet of my pc and wireless for 360 but on the 360 the wireless signal is so poor i dont get any signal bars on my 360 and after trying forever to connect to xboxlive i usually get disconnected, i want to know wether i can use the belkin router to boost my signal range.
