Connect two wireless routers

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi all

Here's my setup.

-Network A is connected to ISP A through a wireless router.
-Network B is connected to ISP B through a wireless router.

I would like Network A and Network B connected to each other to but still maintain their own ISP (computers from Net A connect to the internet through ISP A, Net B through ISP B). I want Net A & B to be able share files with each other.

You would need a 3'd router to do this.

The best thing would be to connect the 3'd router to the other two with network cables.

However, if all your router's are capable of "bridge" mode, you it might be possible to bridge the two wireless networks on a 3'd wireless router. I suspect this would take a lot of tinkering to get working and wouldn't be very reliable if you did get it working.

There is another option that does not require a third router

Here is the criteria:

crossover cable between routers
set both routers lan to the same subnet [like for one and for the other]
disable dhcp on both routers
statically assign the ip addresses [<->254]
statically assign the gateway ips to manually balance the internet access
