Need Wireless and Wired Running together

Hi there,

As the title suggests i need to setup my networks so that they are both working harmoniously together.

The reason i need this is because on the wireless side i need to connect to my router for internet access.

On the wired side i need to connect to my NAS. I have tried connecting the NAS box to the router and it works but it is too slow.

On the hardware side everything works independantly.

I have 2 routers i am using for the job and one is connected to the internet.

Just wwant to elaborate slightly.
The connections seem to both be connected. but the internet doesn't work.
Could this be because the internet is trying to connect across the wired network?
If so how do i force it to use the wireless connection only?

You could set the LAN connections default gateway to the IP address of the WLAN Connection, works for me.

Granted i am sharing internet with that WLAN's connection to another computer, that might make a difference.

What about bridging the connections together? Just taking a guess at it.

It would be a good idea if you could draw out a simple diagram of how you have it all connected so that a way forward can be worked out...it should be a fairly simple solution.

Wired vs Wireless network, is wireless safe.
I generally don't have a need to network computers together. In fact if I do network in my home it will be for only one purpose and would prefer to have the network down 99.99% of the time. I can run the lines needed to connect these two computers but wireless would be easier to get going. I...
