    Hi,

    I assume that you are trying to add wireless to yur network.

    What I have done is to connect the wireless router via one of the switched ethernet ports to a port on the wired router. DO NOT USE THE WLAN port. This bypasses the router function of the wireless device and it acts purely as a switch, including wireless access.
