Network within a network

Specs: Windows XP
Ok here's what i'm trying to do: First my desktop (computer A from here on) is on a wireless network established for the family by my father his computer is directly connected to the router ( router A) so he has full control of the network, now computer A access the network through a belkin G+ MEMO wireless adapter and i'm trying to take that where computer A talkes with router A for the internet and add another router (router B) so i have a private network with internet connection provided by computer A to router B so i can hook up both my laptop and my xbox 360.
p.s. keep the termonology simple i'm some what tech savy but when it comes to terms like nic or what ever it is i become lost without a hope.
sorry about reusing that title but the old subject that other guy used didn't quite touch what i'm trying to do.

If you are trying to by-pass an restrictions you father as put on Router A by introducing you own router, it isn't going to work.

If you connect your router to either Router A or Computer A, you are still going to have to go through router A to get you Internet connection so you might just as well connect to it directly and avoid all the complications of introducing a second router into he netwrok.
