    I recommend getting something such as the EnGenius EOC2611P wireless access point/client bridge. no need for a secondary computer, everything is built into it. they use power over ethernet so just one cable goes to the device, and you can even set it up outdoors. i havent had to pay for internet in 5 years! started with the 2600P now i have two (home and boat)
    for more customization options you can get the dd-wrt firmware (cost a few euros but well worth it).
    what you can do with this nifty device is exactly what you want, grab wifi and re-broadcast it under a new name. you can even hook up a router to it and spread it that way.
    if you cant find them in the UK maybe netgear or dlink have something similar. even cisco makes them. Client Bridge is what your after.
    enjoy.

    That sounds promising. The big question is (and its why I presumed I would need some form of PC) will I be able to enter the "time codes" that I have to buy to get access to the wireless into the router itself?
