Setting up a cable modem, wireless router, switch and vonage router.

Okay I have the following:
Comcast Cable Modem
Netgear wireless router (4 port)
Netgear hub (8 port)
Vonage Linksys router (4 port)

Currently all 4 pieces are in my basement hooked up as follows:
Cable modem to Netgear wireless router.
vonage router to port on netgear wireless router port
Netgear switch is going to netgear wireless router port
In the netgear hub, I have four home PCs running to it and a network printer.

All this works fine as is, EXCEPT that the wireless router needs to come upstairs because we don't have a good signal with it in the basement. Last night i moved it upstairs and unpluged the Linksys Vonage router and switch and re-routed these the following way (which didn't work).

Cable modem to Netgear wireless router.
vonage router to port on netgear hub
Netgear switch is going to port on netgear hub
In the netgear hub, I have four home PCs running to it and a network printer.

So, any ideas how to set this up without using the router on the wireless network access point? With it being upstairs the vonage router and the hub need to be routed elsewhere, but I don't know how. Any help is appreciated. If you need more information please ask. Thanks
