Default D-link wireless router

So I have a 3 computers - One that is connected to a lynksys wrt45gl router which is directly attatched to a cable modem - my laptop then connects to this wirelessly to share files and internet.

On the other computer, there is no wireless card, but i have an extra d-link router that I want to do something with. I'd like to know if there is some way to connect the other computer to this router and then make the d-link connect to the linksys WAP to gain internet access.

you can something like this

the setup is similar just that there isnt a solid line except for a wireless one. The linksys should have a place to designate AP's

The problem is that The computer is in the basement - I cannot have a direct link from it to the lynksys router, otherwise thats what I would have done lol. I need to find a way for the d-link to connect to the lynksys wirelessly.

there are some tutorials.
Wireless Home Networking Kit - Network Setup - Information Technology Services
Wireless Network Access Point (WNAP) Set Up Guide, or: How To Set Up a TWCN Node
