    I just built a PC that actually works. However, I was really cheap and didn't wanna buy a wireless access card, thinking I could connect to an extra router and use this router to connect to my other router that's network enabled. Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about doing it? I tried googling it, but I dunno what this is called.

    You would want to bridge the router. As far as how to do it IDK.

    Aye. I think I found out how to do it. Wireless ethernet bridge is what it's called and not every router can do it because their firmwares don't allow it. The popular ones with that have an iteration of tomato or dd-wrt or some other custom firmware can do it I think.
