Can routers connect over wifi?

Is it possible to connect 2 routers together over wifi with 1 router connected to the Internet and the other conected to a computer so the computer connects to the Internet?

Short answer is yes. The only issue is you need a router that supports that function or supports a 3rd part firmware like DDWRT. I did this from a time, and its a pain in the ass, from what I remember.
