Default Question about wireless router..

I just bought a Wireless 802.11B router and I was wondering if I already have a normal router, can I plug an ethernet cable from the normal router into the Wireless and have it work alongside the normal router?The reason is, my parents wont unplug their normal router since they are computer illiterate and beleive they wont have internet ever again.

Anyways anyhelp would be greatly appreciated..

Haha, just tell them that it will work...

I guess you could have a router connect to a router...it should work. It's connecting a router that's connected to several computers to a router that's connected with several other computers too.

you can have one of the output cables frmo the normal router going into the wireless one, or you can have it going the other way around.
