    Try to setup your wireless router with dynamic IP address with login into wireless router. Then restart the router and acquire all the information from network. IP range and subnet of your wired router should match with wireless router. Check the following thread on Range of Wired and wireless Router

    You can connect your wireless router with wired router. Try following steps:
    • Login to the admin interface of wireless router
    • Disable the DHCP server
    • Change the IP address of both the wireless and wired router to avoid conflicts
    • Connect a cable to one of the lan ports of wired router
    • Then connect the same port on wireless router

    There should not be ant cable plugged into the wan port of the wireless router. You can bypass the firewall of wireless router to communicate between all your computers without any interruption.

    It is very easy to connect the wireless with wired router. You need to fix the WAN IP address of your wireless router and disable DHCP and statically asign the IP address for wireless router. You can automatically login to wireless router from your computers.
