I looked up the Linksys router you have. It has wireless capabilities plus 4 ports for wired connections.
My suggestion would be to hook the Internet modem up to the router (In the uplink port), plug the two PCs into the ports on your router (Port 1 and 2, or whatever you like, it doesn't matter), install the wireless card on the 3rd computer and connect your third computer to the network through your new wireless connection.
That way you save yourself some trouble hooking 1 router into another router. Hope this helps.

you CAN (it's kinda messy) connect a router to a router...you just have to use a crossover cable...make sure that the wireless router is set up to recieve it's ip address through dhcp and that it is also giving out ip addresses on the wireless side in the same manner

ecept that the current router IS also the modem correct? so you can't really replace that with the other router (unless it is in fact a modem as well)
That is correct yes, so the only i'm gonna get it to work is to buy a crossover cable?
