You do need to check to make sure that you can run a 200ft cable and have it work. The distance might be too far. In a quick web search, it looks like it might be possible.
The major issue is getting it all to work properly. I connected a wireless router to my main router and after quite a bit of work I managed to get it to work. The second router has to get it's IP address from the first router and the IP address range for the second router needs to be different than the first router. Unfortunately, I don't remember all I had to do in order to get it to work.

if you DON'T already have the second router...go out and buy a wireless access point instead...it's already configured to just connect in to the first router and act as a wireless switch/bridge
