    Right now I have this setup
    Wireless router --> Wireless Game Adapter----PC
    (I assume the wireless adapter is essentially a bridge?)

    Is there any way I can I set them up to do this:

    Wireless router --> Wireless Game Adapter--Extra router --> two other pcs.
    To extend the range a bit

    --> = wireless
    --- = wired

    I've tried a few methods but I can't seem to get it to work.

    OK so the wireless game adapter is just a device that gives wifi support to devices that don't already have it using the ethernet cable between the adapter and the device. In your case a PC.

    Why not get a wifi pci card? If no free pci slots then never mind.

    I'm not all to sure why that second idea didn't work.

    If you can get either one of the PC wired to the first router, then I would just get a wifi pci card for each.

    I'm trying to effectively double the wireless range with the adapter and 2nd router. Both of the two pc's are not anywhere near the original router, I could buy a pci card I was just trying to see if I could do this for free first with what I have and also expand the range since one of the 2 PCs is out of the range of the Main router.
