Here is the setup I am going for.

PC1 & PC2 connected via ethernet cable to old Linksys RT31P2.
RT31P2 connected via ethernet to PC3 which has a wireless adapter, which is wireless connected to a Linksys WRT54G.

All PCs are running Windows 7.

I can get PC1 & PC2 to connect to the network doing this, but neither connect to the Internet.

I have the wireless adapter on PC3 shared.

Suggestions?

Can you presice which router is internet connected ?

I would also ask.. why in your network do you need two routers ?

edit: after reading again, do you mean that you Wan port on the RT31P2 is connected directly to your PC3 ? and the internet is coming on the PC3 from the WRT54G wireless, and trying to get internet passes throught your pc3 to the RT31P2 router, then on your pc1 and 2 ? Precise more on your internet source plz ! I

edit 2 : Are you having any problem ? i mean, you say suggestions.. suggestions on what ?

From what I understand you have everything connected correctly.

It should go like this... Modem > Wireless Router > Ethernet PC1 + PC2 > Wireless Router > Wireless PC3.

I have to do it this way due to the location of the PCs and the availability of only 1 wireless network card.

I currently have it setup as:

Cable Modem > Wireless Router > Wireless PC > Ethernet cable from wireless PC to Internet port on Wired Router > Wired Router > Ethernet cable from Wired Router to PC2 > Ethernet cable from Wired Router to PC 3

The problem I am having is that PC2 & PC3 cannot access the internet through the wireless PC1.

OK update: I have since swapped out the old router I was using for a Linksys 10/100 Switch. It hasn't made a difference though.

On PC1 (the one with the wireless card), I can ping the wireless router, and PC2 & PC3 (the ones connected to the switch with the ethernet cable). I just can't get PC2 or PC3 to be able to ping the wireless router. Doesn't seem to make much sense. I can ping going in one direction, but not in the other. For some reason the packet is getting stopped at PC1. PC2 & PC3 can ping PC1, but cannot ping the wireless router "through" PC1.

That's how it is. But of course they are plugged into the switch. The wireless router is on the 2nd floor, while these 3 PCs are on the 1st.
