I have an old router connected to my pc via ethernet(no internet connection) and my pc connected wirelessly to another router for internet access.

I'm wanting to use the wired router connected to my pc so I can get better signal when streaming local media from my pc in my room, but still have wireless access to the other router's internet.

I lose internet access when I connect the router directly to my pc.

How can I fix that?
