i'm going to assume that the wii and xbox are too far away from the first wireless router?

id suggest getting a wireless access point instead of a router.....a router will give you a different ip subnet which could make networking more funky...however a wireless access point will not give you a different subnet...it's basically just like a switch (i.e. doesn't route...just gives you a connection to an existing network) but wireless....

.....well...i thought i answered that...but

if you're asking if you can plug your switch into the modem directly...then plug the router into the switch.....technically that MIGHT work....but i don't think it would work well
