I have a wireless network using an airlink AR360W3G. I connect to a wireless broadband network through this router via a pcmcia card plugged into the router. There is only one output e-net port on this router. There is also wireless "g" ports.

I would like to use my linksys WRT350N router to provide "n" wireless and gigabit wired access. Is there a way to use the airlink for WAN access and the linksys for lan access?

It goes something like this:

(Internet ISP) x.x.x.x --> Router 1 the advertised external gateway to it's clients will be, the internal range will be 192.168.1.x

(Router 1) --> Router 2 the external side and DNS server for this router will be router ones 1.1 address. The internal range will be 192.168.2.x

Clear as mud? Just run the CAT5 from the cable modem to the WAN port of the first router. Then run a CAT5 from port 1-4 (any will be fine) to the WAN port of router 2. Router 2's subnet needs to be different from router 1's subnet.
