Is there a device that connects to an existing wireless network, and lets me share internet among several wired ethernet devices plugged into it?

I have a desktop and a networked storage device upstairs, and a desktop/printer/IP phone downstairs. The desktop upstairs is plugged into a wireless router, which is connected to the Internet modem.

I am looking for a device into which I'd be able to plug in my equipment downstairs, and establish a connection to the network upstairs without pulling a dedicated wire for the link?


Sounds like you're looking for a Wireless Bridge.

A wireless bridge is a hardware component used to connect two or more network segments (LANs or parts of a LAN) which are physically and logically (by protocol) separated.
