Multiple Routers for LAN Party

Heya! I was planning on hosting a LAN party, and I know the best way to do it is to use a switch. But I already have 3 wireless routers to play with.

With three linksys WRT54G type wireless routers, each with 4 LAN ports and one WAN port, would it be possible to create one unified network for eight or more computers? Any ideas would be great. Thanks!

You could yes.

First, pick whichever router is going to do your DHCP and make that your main (#1) router. Connect the other two using crossover cables. Connect from LAN port on #1 to LAN port on #2 and 3. Ensure you have DHCP disabled on 2 and 3 and it should work properly.

You may have to give 2 and 3 IP's on the LAN side that are in the subnet of the #1. If you do, make sure you use IP's that are not in the DHCP scope.
