I have a wrt120n and a befsr81 linksys routers. I need 8 ports and wireless. How can I connect these two routers so all computers can see each other on the network.

it would be better to do this without using two routers...but, you need to check the manual for both of the routers and see if either has the ability to be changed to "Access Point Mode"...an access point is basically a wireless switch. you would end up with one of the routers remaining in "router" mode, that one would remain connected to the modem, then you'd switch the other router into AP mode and wire it directly into the main router.
