I do this at home. Plug the ethernet cable from the wired router into
one of the LAN ports (not the WAN port) on the wireless router. Assign
the wireless router a fixed IP address somewhere in the wired router's
address space (not in the dhcp address space). Turn off dhcp service in
the wireless router; the wired router will take care of that. Go to the
wireless router via its IP address; configure the WPA2 key. 

That should do it.

 binary versions of R for that platform, but
 perhaps you could find a suitable compiler and
 manage to build the sources. Outside pure
 mathematics it is usually very hard to establish
 that something cannot be done (and it can be very 
 hard in pure mathematics, too).    -- Lars Strand
