Just to be clear, are you saying that you would use two separate routers?

It certainly technically possible. I mean the routers are going to keep the two computers on separate networks and act as gateways between the two. The question is what kind of routers you're using, and whether the routers are going to be able to talk to one another. If these are home-networking NAT routers then I'm not sure... I've never tried connecting the WAN port of a router to another router's WAN port.

Why are we using two routers in this situation, may I ask?

Just turn off dhcp on router 2. Next, when you take a wire out of router 1, plug it into one of the numbered ports on router 2.
NOT INTO THE WAN JACK!! The wan jack is NOT used on router 2. You can repeat this with many routers. If you went to router 3 then, you can only really use two ports(on a 4 port router)on router 2, because one comes in from router1, and one goes to router 3.

It's weird, but it works, and all will be on same network!Posted Image
