using a router to split the ics with wireless laptop no inte

Specs: windows vista home premium
I have a Laptop running Vista and I have ICS already configured (IP automatically populated) on it. The laptop is connected to a wireless router which is located upstairs. What i want to do is use the internet connection on my laptop.. use ICS to split the connection and run a lan cable from my laptop (running ICS) to a router and connect other pcs and devices to that router. Reason being is the wireless router is in one part of the house and we have pcs and devices in another

The easiest thing to do would be to connect the second router to the first wirelessly in bridge mode.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

You would assign the router a static ip of [you list vista not win7 which uses a different subnet for ICS]
You would disable the routers dhcp server
You would connect with a crossover cable from vista lan port to router lan port
You DO NOT use the routers wan port.

That should be all there is to the setup.
