I have a wireless router connected to a modem. I'd to add a wireless router in another area of the house to use to connect other devices. Is this possible to add wireless router without connecting via cable to the 1 router coming off of the modem?

Search for "wireless repeater" or "wireless extender"

Unlike adding a traditional access point to your network to expand wireless coverage, wireless range extenders do not need to be connected to the network by a data cable. Just put the wireless range extender within range of your main access point or wireless router, and it "bounces" the signals out to remote wireless devices.
