Re: 2 router wireless
Yes, you can connect the second router to your exitsing router , you just need to connect the a cable from port 4 of the main router to the internet/wan port of the second router , then after that you can already use now the 2 wireless router at the same time. Also don't forget to turn off both routers after you're done in connecting them together so they will be synch...

You wouldn't use a wireless router for the second device -- you would use a wireless bridge device. Most Wireless Access Points can be configured to be wireless bridge devices or you may be able to find a dedicated wireless bridge. Unfortunately, these devices usually have just one Ethernet port. That will mean that you'll need to buy an Ethernet switch in addition to the device that you're going to be using as a wireless bridge. This will add to your cost and make it so there is no real cost savings by using the Wireless Bridge + Ethernet switch combination. If you can find a wireless bridge unit that has more than one Ethernet port, then you may be in business. Using a second wireless router will not work unless the device has the ability to be configured to be a wireless bridge. Such routers are usually more expensive than your typical router, but you might get lucky and find one at a good price. Good Luck
So access the computer that the router is installed on. Open the program that managed the network ( I have seen these both as a program installed on the computer and as an Internet accessed destination). Select add device, once you have done that the key that you need should pop up. Just put that in your laptop and you should be ready to surf the net.

Does your laptop come with a wireless feature? If not, you will have to add a wireless NIC.
