Greetings all,

I was wondering what setup I would need to accomplish the following.

I have a LAN setup in my house now with a wireless router. I have one computer hardwired and one laptop using the wierless connection.

I have three older computers out in my garage that I would like to use for malware testing, removal and just playing around. I would like them to have internet access from the same modem but do not want them to have access to my house LAN. If I understand correctly, using a second router off of the first router will keep my house LAN safe from things crawling into it from the garage LAN. But my issue is that I don't want to run a cable outside to the garage. Is there a way to wirelessly shoot my connection from the house router out to the garage and then have a wired LAN there? What equiptment would I need to do this?

This all makes sense in my head but I hope it translates well to others! I'd be happy to elaborate more if anyone is kind enough to share some knowledge.

Thanks in advance.
