How to set up a router to play on Live wirelessly?

Hello, I have a modem connected to my desktop PC in "Room A."  I would like to be able to play Live with a wireless connection in "Room B."  I know I'll need a router but I'm not sure how to set up the router to connect w/ the modem.  Any help would be greatly welcome!  Thank you!!

You should connect your modem directly to your new router.  Then your PC is connected to the router with an Ethernet cable.  Your Xbox will connect to your new router via wireless.    

Just take the Ethernet cable that goes from your modem to  your PC and plug it into the back of the router, into the "Internet" port; not one of the four LAN ports. You will need an additional Ethernet cable to reach from one of the four LAN ports on the back of the router to your PC.  

Once your PC is connected to the router, you will need to use it to configure the wireless settings on your router.  Once those are enabled and setup with a password, you can connect your Xbox via wireless

Ok, thank you.  Is it possible though after my modem and router have been connected to move the router to "Room B" , keep the modem in "Room A" (wireless connection from modem to router) and then have a wired connection from my Xbox to the router?

No, your modem most likely has one output--a single cable connection. This will need to connect to your router in order for your router to broadcast the wireless signal.
