it's not in your best interest to have two router's in line with each other as you're describing...it's pretty much useless to do such a thing...but it can be done if you absolutely want to do this...your best option would be to choose one router or the other not both (obviously you're wanting wireless so go with that one) if you're ABSOLUTELY dead set on having the two routers...you'll need to get a crossover cable to connect them
