I'm basically following this guide:

It works wirelessly, but I'm trying to get it to work physically. Is there anyway to do this?

The end goal is to have my old PC as a server on the other side of the house, connected to nothing but the second router and a power cord. I know I could do this easily just by running an ethernet cord across the house and skip using the second router altogether, but I'd really rather not.
