Setup Network Problem

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 2 Gig
Hi, I'm having a problem setting up my home network, i'm hoping someone here could assist me. I have 3 desktops and only 2 of them that i need to be in one network so i'm able to access 1 computer through another.

I got this working before with no problem, now there's 3 computer and 2 routers. in reference to distinct which once i'm refering to are the following:

A, B, C - Desktop Computers
R1 & R2 - Routers

R1 is connected directly to the Modem
A Comp is connected to R1
B & C Comp are connected to R2 which is also connected to R1
(A Comp is in different room than B & C Comps)

So, what I want to do is setup a network only for Computers B & C. How can I do so? I know for a fact that I can setup a network for all 3 computers if all of them are connected to R1 router without a second router to be shared by only 2 computers. All help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Note: All computers can access the internet, no problem, I just need comp B & C to be connected through a network so I would be able to transfer files back and fort.

You're really making things hard on yourself. You only need one router for 3 PCs. If you don't want to run cat5 cables to the other rooms, buy some wireless NICs for the other 2 PCs.

First, Comp A is not mine... Second, I dont wanna run 2 long ethernet wires for both B & C... Third, my wireless router R1 kept on losing signal... Forth, your suggestion is costly also if buying another cable and would look silly having too much cables running around the house. I'm looking for a way to make the network work not to spend more than i need to...

Ok, forget I mentioned it. I wouldn't want your house to look silly.
