Default Can I connect a router... to another router?

Hey guys,

I am going to a lan party soon and almost everyone has wireless cards in their PC's except for like 5 or 6. Well we were originally using a router with 4 ports in addition to it having wireless capibilities. So I was thinking we could take an other 4 port router and hook the wireless router up to that. Would it work? Any problems with it? I am not much of a network person...

Here's a lazy drawing of what I was thinking


P.S. Try to act like you were explaining this to a 50 year old woman who knows NOTHING about computers... thats really how clueless I am

Yip.. I have a router.. hooked in a router.. hooked in a router.. and tow of those routers are in my room.. one is wired and wireless.. it'll work. =)

You shouldn't have any problems with it.. I havn't had any..

Just hook a CAT5 (ethernet) cable from one into the other.. and if you need another router from that one.. hook another CAT5 (ethernet) cable into that one from the previous.
