Need help setting up home wireless network

I have in one room of my house a Belkin N+ F5D8235-4 v2000 wireless router connected by CAT-5e cable to my wife's desktop PC. In our living room are my laptop, which is connected wirelessly to the Belkin router, a Sony Bravia TV and a Sony Blu-Ray player. Both of the Sony units are capable of internet access by means of CAT-5e Ethernet. However, stringing Ethernet cables from the living room to the computer room is not an option, so I need to have a wireless access point in the living room that connects to the internet through the Belkin router. I could then connect Ethernet cables from my Sony devices to its Ethernet ports.

Is there a way to do this? What routers out there support this kind of setup? I say that Cisco offers the WAP54G, but they say that one must use two of them and that each one must be hard-wired via Ethernet to a PC (see this link: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.as...pid=96&slnid=4. That seems expensive as all get out.

I offer my thanks in advance.

Richard
