Two CISCO routers(WIFI) R1 and R2 connected (wired) with servers S1 and S2 respectively. Another router (belkin) R3 is connected through LAN to boost the WFI signal. everything is working fine. The problem is the router R3 is making the pair with R1 instead of R2.

What model cisco routers are we talking about?

If I'm reading this correclty, you wish to connect the newest router (the Belkin) to the second Cisco router. If this is correct, then you simply plug the Belkin into a LAN port on the second Cisco.

Sorry I forgot to mentioned that Two servers (S1 & S2) are interconnected , The belkin(R3) is connected with LAN line coming from S2. The router model is 877-w.

Ok, the servers aren't relative to interconnecting the routers.

As I said above...assuming the internet goes into Router 1 (R1) and router 2 (R2) is daisychained to it..........here's the setup:

Internet >> R1 WAN Port - R1 LAN Port >> R2 LAN Port - R2 LAN Port >> R3 LAN Port

Again, I'm assuming you wish all three routers to be within the same subnet (network) ergo the LAN port to LAN port connections. For more information on how to interconnect these routers simply click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second router to your LAN

Based on the above, here's an example of the TCP/IP settings:

R1
WAN:
Externally provided

LAN:
IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

R2
LAN:
IP: 192.168.0.2
SM: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

R3
LAN:
IP: 192.168.0.3
SM: 255.255.255.0
DG: 192.168.0.1

I would recommend enabled and configuring DHCP on only R1 and disable it on R2 and R3
