    Yes, the internet is "basically" a giant network of daisy chained routers between computers. run "tracert google.com" in command prompt sometime and you'll see just how many routers you go through just to get to Google.

    I've noticed some people talking about possible addressing conflicts above.

    This is easily resolved by any of the following:

    1.- Static IP (easiest)
    2.- Proper configuration of a DHCP Reservation table (you probably won't be able to do this unless you have a Server OS
    3.- Set the two router's to send out two different IP address ranges for your internal network.

    Also a good security mesare for networks is to change off of the router's default ranging schema anyways, for example Cisco uses 192.168.0.0, change that to something else like 12.34.0.0 or something else.
