Here's my current wired network with a WiFi-router.

WiFi
cablemodem <--->router<--->Printer
^ |
| |
| +------->PC-WinXP
|
|
+------->iMac (OS X 10.6.2)


I want to add a 2 TB NAS, so I want to add a 1 Gbps router (and Cat 5e/6
cables).

Instead of buying a new router with WiFi, it's cheaper to get a 1000
mbps router alone if I keep the WiFi Router.

Can I "insert it" into the high speed part of my network and leave the
"slow stuff" on the outside "WiFi-Router", thus:

WiFi
cablemodem <--->router<--->printer
|
|100
|
router-1000/100/10
| | |
| | |
| | |
| | +------>Mac-1000 mbps capable
| |
| |
| +-------->PC(WinXP)-with new 1000mbps card
|
|
+---------->NAS(2 TB) 1000 mbps capable

What would the IP map look like - 192.168.1.1, 1.2 for the router and
printer then 192.168.2.1, 2.2, 2.3 for the PC, Mac and NAT?

Thanks.
Alan
