daisy chain routers

Linksys Wrt160n wireless router

Specs: Windows XP
Here's the situation...
I am running wireless N in my home, it works well (The G I used to run would not reach my sons room).
I have ordered a Wifi Radio from CCrane for my Bedroom. They tell me it will only work on G and I should switch my N to G mode (If the Router allows that.
What I was thinking was to wire a G into the N so I can run the PC's off the N and the Radio off the G. Am I on the right track here (I am a rookie at this). If so, how do I do it? If not, what should I do?

Check the specs on your N router, chances are it's N/G/B and your radio should work on it without any extra routers in the mix.

If it is N/G/B then try it first before buying another router.

If it won't work with your present setup click on my name in this reply and look over my "howto" guide for adding a second router.
