Question about Linksys (NR041) Router
Main router has one of 4 wired port going to outlying building with one(1) computer. Connecting this one computer to internet, not a problem.
Two additional computes now being added to outlying bldg & do not want to bury addional cat-5 cable or go wyfi.
I have a Lynksys NR041 wired router. Can I use this to connect line coming from main source then connect computers via the "uplink" function? If so, how is this done?

You can do this. Identify the ip address of your main router. EXAMPLE: If your main router has 192.168.1.1, you can connect the cat5 cable from your main router to the INTERNET PORT of the NR041. Set the NR041 ip to 192.168.2.1.
JUST MAKE SURE THAT THE IP ADDRESS OF THE TWO ROUTERS ARE DIFFERENT.
You can then connect the 3 computers to the NR041

Tips for a great answer:
NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
