Windows 7: I want to share the internet connection from PC to a wireless router

I want to share the internet connection from PC to a wireless router

I want to share my internet connection to the wireless router just for the wireless feature, sure I could connect the ethernet cable to the router but the router is 10/100 and my internet connection is 1000 so I'd lose a lot of speed. I have 2 network cards in my PC and I've connected the ethernet cable to one of my network cards and another cable to my second network card and to the wireless's router internet socket.
I tried selecting the Local Area Connection that has the internet and tried the "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection", but then I can't access the modem through 192.168.1.1



I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64



Any help on how to achieve this ?

Connect the 2nd router to one of the open ports of the first router, this makes it 192.168.1.2 then setup the wifi. That leaves three ports open on the first router that is 1000.

I don't have a second router, my internet cable is directly connected to my PC's network card. And there is nothing to setup on the wifi. I can see the wifi on my phone and I can connect to it but I still can't open any web application. Thus I believe the internet is not shared.

Case closed, figured it out. There was a button with no description on it in the router's software, fiddled with it a bit and after a few switching cables and trying again...finally made it work.

How safe is it?

I tried to change the password when downloading, but it came back to the standard password in the box.
