hi, i have my internet coming into the house downstairs...i have a wireless router set up next to the modem, and receiving internet upstairs. no problem.
i have a DVR upstairs that needs to connect to the router. What's the best way of doing this, when the router is downstairs and i don't want to run a cable through the house/walls?

Simply use a wireless router that supports dd-wrt and turn it into a wireless bridge.
