What models are these routers? Do you want this done wirelessly or wired?

The router upstairs is a netgear WGU624 and the router downstairs is a Linksys T-mobile one. I would like this to be wireless as I want to give the computer hooked up (hardwired) to the wireless WGU624 to have internet and also have or be apart of the network, the fileserver is on the WGU624. Sorry for being vauge.

This may work simply by defining the LAN IP of the secondary router to be within the domain of IP addresses assigned by the primary router and disabling DHCP on the secondary router.

I'm not positive on this as I have not tried it to wirelessly link 2 routers, but that's what I did to add a secondary wireless router as a wireless access point (and technically it should also work to bridge them wirelessly since then the secondary router is merely acting as a switch with all the IPs assigned by the primary router)
