I am trying to use a router as a wireless adapter. I don't know if this is possible, but I was under the impression that a router is an adapter that can also act as an access point. I want to use the wireless router to connect my directv dvr to my network. Essentially my dsl modem/wireless router is in the office and my dvr is in the living room and I want to use on demand without running wires or buying an expensive gaming adapter. Am I able to do this? Please help.

Depends entirely on the router. Some you can, some you can't.
