I just don't know what the best practice will be as far as where to put this wireless router. You don't exactly run into that at my job. Anyone got information for where I put this wireless router? Does it go from modem to the wireless router to the router, or modem > router > switch > wireless router?

I remember correctly the 2651 only has an ethernet in and ethernet out port. So I would go Modem > Router > Switch > Wireless. Do you want to be able to remote into the cisco devices from work or the devices you have hooked up to the cisco gear? To have access to the cisco devices from work you need to set up SSH inside the cisco gear. You'll also need to know what outside IP address your ISP is giving you. You might have a DHCP address so it will change over time, the best practice is to get a static but its not needed if you can remember to periodically check your address (ipchicken.com can do this for you). If you want to access your devices that are hooked up to the cisco gear, you'll need to either set up a L2L VPN (which i highly doubt your work will let you do) or a remote access VPN tunnel that you use with the Cisco VPN client. The latter of the 2 would require you to also know your outside IP at home as well.

I think you shouldn't be using two routers. If you are planning on using this Cisco router then instead of adding your Belkin wireless router, you want to run a wireless access point instead. Unless you can set the Belkin device as a wireless access point.

It really wouldnt matter if he just puts it on a different subnet? Say 192.168.2.1 instead of 192.168.1.1 .... especially since hes only using it for his iphone.

"Putting it on a different subnet" would only really be applicable if you used the WAN interface of the Belkin that was hung off of the switch. The issue with this implementation is that you now have a layer of PAT between wireless clients and the rest of your LAN.

Simply connecting by LAN port to the switch allows the wireless clients to operate within the same broadcast domain of your LAN/VLAN.
