Question about Linksys Wireless-G WGA54G 802.11g/b (wap54ag) Wireless Gaming Adapter
Based on the category you picked I need to ask if you want to connect a wireless adapter in a computer to the one wireless router you have or do you have such a large area that you need two wireless routers to cover the space. They are two very different issues. Please add a comment to this issue if you really have two routers -- it is a different problem than the one I will describe.
Assuming the picture of the device is right and it is another wireless adapter you need to connect to the router.-- the simple answer is basically the same as the ones before which is probably not helpful now. (Assuming the wireless adapter is installed and the drivers loaded.) Then if you have an secure network (where WEP or WPA was enabled) you probably will need to connect to the specific network using your adapters manufacturer's software or Windows Wireless Zero Configuration where you will probably need to supply a network name (SSID) and the passphrase that was configured inro the router. If you have an unsecured network your adapter may work without configuration. There is one other possible issue -- most routers dynamically assign ip address and other information to the adapters. If your router was not configured to supply all information including DNS addresses we may have some additional configuration to apply to the wireless adapter.
Please respond if these steps are two complex so I can provide additional information. Please provide the manufacturer and model of the wireless router and wireless adapter if that is the case so I can provide more detailed information specific to your hardware.

On the advance routing section of your 2nd router´s configuration page, here are the options :
Advanced Routing Capture(hrouting.phase2)
On the Routing screen, you can set the routing mode and settings of the Router. Gateway mode is recommended for most users.
Capture(hrouting.phase3)Choose the correct working mode. Keep the default setting, Gateway, if the Router is hosting your network connection to the Internet (Gateway mode is recommended for most users). Select Router if the Router exists on a network with other routers.
Capture(hrouting.phase4)Dynamic Routing (RIP)
Capture(hrouting.phase5)Note: This feature is not available in Gateway mode.
Capture(hrouting.phase6)Dynamic Routing enables the Router to automatically adjust to physical changes in the network layout and exchange routing tables with other routers. The Router determines the network packets route based on the fewest number of hops between the source and destination.
Capture(hrouting.phase7)To enable the Dynamic Routing feature for the WAN side, select WAN. To enable this feature for the LAN and wireless side, select LAN & Wireless. To enable the feature for both the WAN and LAN, select Both. To disable the Dynamic Routing feature for all data transmissions, keep the default setting, Disable.
