OK, I have an issue. I am trying to use two routers in a
local network. The primary router is a microsoft mn-100
wired router, the second router is a microsoft mn-700
wireless router. I am trying to access the internet.

The broadband modem is connected to the mn-100. I need
info on how to connect the wireless router to the mn-100,
so I can access the internet. I will be using the
wireless router in a different building. I am trying to
test the system before I wire the two buildings. Thanks
for your help.

that's an unsupported network topology. if you are looking to
wirelessly connect two buildings, you need wireless equipment on each
end that will support wireless bridging via point to multi point. the
MS brand wireless won't do this. if you are looking to hardwire the
700 to a 100 in another building and turn it into an access point for
wireless access only (turn off DHCP, firewall, etc), that should work
but it almost sounds like you are in a commercial environment looking
to use residential equipment.
