Need help having 2 linksys routers work together

    I have a Linksys befsr81 with 8 ports and a WRT54G wireless router. I currently have the wireless router connected and working with our t1 line but want to add another 6 wired connections so we had the befsr81 sitting around so we decided to use it (no software was with it)

    My question is how do I configure these two routers to work together? From the t1 modem there is a crossover cable going to the wireless - do I need to use another between the two? Any help or a sketch would be most appreciated

    simply connect a lan port on the WRT54G to a lan port on the BEFSR81 and disable the dhcp server on whatever router isn't hosting the internet connection.
