Wicked network setup


I have two computers based out of my room, one running WindowsXP and the other is running Slackware 9.1. The windows computer is connected to a linksys wireless router for the internet and is also connected to a LAN (linksys router) which hosts both it and the linux computer via cable for file sharing. I have a problem and a question:

The first is when I have my LAN connection enabled I cannot connect to the Internet via my wireless connection.

The second is that if the above problem can be fixed, can I use the windows computer to route its internet connection thru the LAN to the Linux box?

I understand that this is not really linux related hence its location in the General forum. I am open for any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Cant you get rid of one of the routers, or use one for just a firewall and hook both systems up to one router.?

I would but the wireless router maintianing the cable connection is sitting too far away to link it up with a direct cable connection.
