Alright

Ive got a router downstairs and a long eth. cable from there to my room upstairs to my 360, i was thinking of buying one of those wireless adaptors but ive got a spare router lying around , so my query is could i put my spare router upstairs and connect to my router upstairs without connected it to a computer (just do it all through the 360)

you will have to configure it initially with a pc to create the bridge connection, it wont just work out of the box.
ive done it with my linksys router, using DD WRT firware.
