    Hi and thanks for the new idea. But I just proved that this does not 
work well:

I put the laptop on a wire port of the second router. This router plugs 
into the first router and this computer is plugged into the first 
router. So now both computers are on wired Internet. I can ping this 
computer from the laptop and it is perfect. Now I ping the laptop from 
this computer and it fails totally. So there is a problem I'm not aware of.
