    does the wireless router have CAT5 ports. if so why use the second router.

    plug your internet connection into the WAN port on the router and connect the wired computers to the other CAT5 ports on the wireless router. then of course your wireless boxes will connect via no cables... your hardware is configured.

    for the question about setting up the network do the following...

    Doubleclick on your my network places icon. and on the right side panel click on network setup wizard. follow this on all computers.

    You will need to run network setup wizard on every computer before they will be recognzed. The best way to do this is to make a network setup disk with a floppy(when promted to choose an option in the setup wizard ).
