Multiple routers, WPA and WEP

Specs: Windows 7
Right now the router in my home uses WPA2 security. This is great for my computers, but my Nintendo DS Lite only supports WEP (showing its age, I suppose). I found our old router, a Truemobile 2300, sitting around. Can I connect this second router to the first and have WEP on that one?

Having two routers on the same network is possible but very complicated and beyond my knowledge.

A much easier solution would be to log in to your existing router's configuration web-page and, if available, change it's wireless encryption type from WPA2 to WEP.
Most routers (including my brand new one) have WEP as an alternative to WPA/WPA2.

I don't know the make of your existing router (the one your currently using) but with most routers you access it's configuration page by typing into the address bar of any web-browser, then press Enter.

If that address doesn't work, check the router's user guide as it may be a different web address.
