I'm considering purchasing a second 4 port wireless linksys g router to use as a "router" instead of a "gateway". It will essentially connect to my other linksys router which already connects to the internet. I want it for the 4 ports to connect a few non wireless computers that are in one room.
I just wanted to make sure that once configured correctly, the computers attached through the "router", (or second router), will recieve their ip addressing from the first one.
My other question was, all of my computers are networked over the wireless currently, but all the computers that i want networked would be on the second router wired. Since they are in the same router would they work at 100 mb speeds or would they be forced to run to the first router and back making their speed 54 mb due to going through the wireless? Would creating a subnet fix this?
If im unclear, just let me know...
EDIT: Can someone fix the title to read "Using a wireless router as a "router""
