? About home networking

Is there a way to connect two routers to one modem? (As in a router to router connection) I would like to use one strictly as a wireless port and for online gaming (multiple systems), and the other for normal internet usage (3 computers). If possible, what would I need to configure on each router.

I'm curious, what are you trying to accomplish by doing this?

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.

I am in need of more wired Ethernet ports, but I also have wireless devices connected to the same router. As of right now my xbox 360 and ps3 are sharing the same port. PSN does not like that very much... So I am looking for a solution. I am open to suggestions of course, as I am fairly naive on this sort of thing.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but this is posted around once every 2-3 months. Search back in this particular forum, no more then 3 months.
