Having concerns of wireless security, my home network is wired. I've added a wireless router off of the wired router. Both are Cisco Linksys routers. Does this setup make wireless internet any more secure? Or have I made my wired network less secure?

It depends. . .

How do you have the two routers chained together?

If you set it up so that wireless users only have Internet access, and not local LAN access, then your LAN is still safe.
