Default 2 Routers, 1 internet

Ok, so, I've got a router setup to act as an intermediary between a printer and two computers and another one upstairs to access the internet. Both are currently running Fedora 10. A problem with this is, when both networking devices are activated on my desktop, the machine loses the ability to access the internet. Both routers can be pinged and both setup pages can be accessed through a browser, but no external sites can. One router is wireless and the other is wired. The wireless one is the only one with WAN access. I am lead to believe the system considers the wired router as a higher priority and attempts to connect through it, though I have no idea on how to go about changing that >:C

Are these stand-alone routers or routers/modems?
