Default Internet

My new computer will be in a different room and Shaw only allows 1 modem per account so I'll have to figure out an alternative way of connecting to the internet. My main computer setup is only a few rooms down and It has a cable modem and a Linksys WRT310N router hooked up giving it's using DD-WRT. I'm wondering if my old DELL WRTA-108GD router would act like a wireless adapter picking up my other wireless routers internet connection. My other 2 alternatives are: picking up a Powerline Ethernet Adapter or putting both computer in the same room to share 1 router (Linksys).

Can anyone confirm if my first method will work?

Yes it will work, you must set your Dell router as a gateway

Login to your dell and see if there's anything to change it to a repeater or a bridge?
You might want to disable dell's DHCP after you finish setting up, as it may have conflicts when there's 2 DHCP servers.

The powerline does work, but speeds vary by how your house is wired.
