Default connecting a wireless to router another wirelessly

Is it possible to connect to a wireless router(a) to another wireless router(b) so that I can hard wire connect router (b) with an ethernet cable to my computer system?

It's possible if wireless router b will act as a wireless bridge. What kind of router is it?

Get a Wireless Bridge Don't make the mistake of taking advice from someone and getting an ACCESS POINT (only) because it won't work.

Also If you do something like this, you need to make sure that you need to set two different channels on the routers and default gateway.
