I used a long cable and connected it to d-link switch(let's call this switch HEAD) in my building.Note the D-link switch here is not the uplink to this router1.

In my building I have a wireless modem that connects to the Internet. My PC connects to this modem wirelessly.This modems IP is .
I connected this modem to HEAD. I have another router-router2 in the adjacent room that is connected to HEAD as well, this time the HEAD is the uplink to router2.
Here is the dea.....,

Are you authorized to do this?

Running a long cable between adjacent buildings is such a bad idea.

Is this a residence or a business?

What are you trying to accomplish?

You have two separate IP networks and therefore you need a LAN-to-LAN router to sit between the two networks.

What type of router are you trying to use for this purpose? Most consumer-grade WAN routers are not usable as a lan-to-lan router.

What you describe as a modem sounds like it is a router, since it has an IP address.
