I have the following

In my office

linksys AG300 wired ADSL gateway 192.168.1.1
D-Link Di-624s Wireless Router 192.168.0.1
and a linksys PAP2T

In Living Area I want to connect a Linksys WRT150N Wireless Router 192.168.2.1

1/. I want to connect the D-link to the gateway(AG300) so i have access downstairs
2/. I want toconnect the D-link Router with the linksys WRT150 so the rest of the house has access to net ( preferably wirelessly)

Any suggestions or links to how i can achieve this would be greatly appreciated.

I would put everything in the same subnet, use the AG300 for NAT and DHCP and turn all the wireless devices into "dumb" access points as you most likely want to avoid the problems of double NAT and different subnets.

Example:

Linksys AG300
- Keep the LAN ip address as 192.168.1.1
- Change DHCP range to start at 192.168.1.5
- In the QoS settings give 192.168.1.2 priority over other traffic (for the PAP2T/voip)

Linksys PAP2T
- Change the LAN ip address to 192.168.1.2
- Connect it to the a AG300 via LAN port

D Link Di-624S
- Change the LAN ip address to 192.168.1.3
- Disable DHCP and NAT
- Connect it to a AG300 LAN port from a LAN port on the Di-624S (don't use WAN port)

Linksys WRT150N
- Change the LAN ip address to 192.168.1.4
- Disable DHCP and NAT
- Connect it to a AG300 LAN port (or a LAN port on the Di-624S doesn't matter) from a LAN port on the WRT150N (don't use WAN port)

If running a cable to the WRT150N is impractical have a look at using ethernet over power, eg:

Connecting two wireless routers wirelessly is kinda problematic, most gear doesn't do wireless bridging only client mode so you'll end up with double NAT and the devices connected to one AP in a different subnet eg: 192.168.0.x to the devices connected to the other AP eg 192.168.1.x. 

I might have overlooked something but that's the best way imo.

Actually I think the WRT150N can do wireless client bridging if you flash it with 3rd party open source firmware like DD-WRT, so you could connect them wirelessly if you were willing to risk changing the firmware.
