    i have an actiontec router that came with my verizon fios and i have a netgear router that i dont use anymore. Yesterday i hardwired my xbox 360(which is in my basement) to my actiotec router(on another floor). However I also have a laptop computer in the same room as my xbox. I want to be able to connect this laptop to the internet without having to pull the ethernet cable out of my xbox everytime i wanna use my laptop. I figured that since I have my netgear router, I dont have to go out and by a switch, I can just turn the netgear into a switch. Can anyone tell me what i have to do to set it up since im basically daisy chaining to routers together.
