Specs: Windows XP
ok my question is the following

i have 2 rooters and 3 computers connected to a switcher
the first rooter gets the internet from the line..
the second sends the internet via wireless
and the through the switch the 3 computers gets the internet from the first rooter..
so my question is.. Is it possible i have all the computers that are connected to the switch in the same lan with the computers that connects to the wireless rooter?

Yes, remove the wired rooter & just use the wireless rooter :)

Your setup can be simlified by just having the wireless router connected to the incoming line and then to the switch.

Like so...

internet<>wireless router<>switch<>wired pcs
wireless pcs are off the wireless router.

Otherwise you connect the wireless router via a lan port [need a crossover cable] and not its wan port. You disable dhcp server on it as well as assign it a static ip like x.x.x.2 so you can admin it.

router1's dhcp flows thru the wireless to the pcs.

Make sense?
