Not problematic. Depending on configuration, could be lots more secure. For instance, I have 2 routers. All my internal stuff works off one of them. So I could have a full lan without other router. Tranfer files/remote into other pcs/share printers/stream audio or video etc...No outside interference.
The "lan" router connects to "outside" router/dsl modem, for internet access. My wireless devices, such as PSP, are on this "outside" router.
It's a very solid/secure setup, especially using WPA2 (AES encryption algorithm) with long, randomly generated password. The ISP, really
has no idea where packets are going on my network once it leaves their dsl modem I'm using. They all
go to my "lan" router and that is my NAT device.
If you want to have a server, port forward both routers similarly.
