Default Using Two Wireless Routers

Ok recently I installed a BT Home Hub downstairs to save me from having to send a 10m ethernet cable upstairs for xbox live. Upstairs connected via ethernet to my main PC is a Belkin ADSL Modem with wireless G router which I used for my main internet access until I installed the BT Home Hub and they now seem to cancel each other out which means when I'm using the home hub. the Belkin won't connect to the internet. Is there a way where I can use both on the same network? Or perhaps even just use the Belkin is a wired router? Sorry if this makes no sense, I'm not too good with technical jargon.

The BT Home Hub is also a combo modem/wireless router and you cannot connect two modems to the BT Broadband line at the same time and have them work, it is one or the other. I don't know which Belkin modem/router you have but does it support WDS , check the manual, and if it does you may be able to use this mode on the routers so that they can communicate wirelessly. I have to say that I have not had any success with this using Linksys equipt and the Hub, diff manufacturers having compatibility issues.
It may be that you will have to run cable from the Hub upstairs or if you are using a PC that is in a fixed position you could try using a "Homeplug"system:- http//www.solwise.co.uk/net-powerline.htm
