I just moved into an apartment complex with my best friend. He has road runner hooked up to a linksys wireless n router in the living room. I have both my PC and a 360 that I want to connect to the internet in my room. I saw these new simultaneous dual band routers from Linksys:

My question is, can I use this to connect to at the very least his wireless router and have both my xbox and PC hooked up at the same time, essentially just using it as a bridge? Secondly, does the simultaneous dual band mean that I can connect to someone's internet connection in addition to his (if they have it unlocked of course) therefore doubling my bandwidth?

Dual band means that you can use either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz wireless connections. The dual bands allows you to use 5Ghz or 2Ghz because it gives you more channels since 2.4Ghz can be cluttered if you have other wireless devices such as cordless phones etc.

If you want to bridge your network using the wireless I would look into getting the DDWRT firmware and setup your wireless network like this link below.
