    is it possible to connect two lan networks like this.

    1st LAN (8 comps) connected directly to the 1st router/switch/AP ("all in
    one") (this router connected to the internet. (all this by cable)
    2st LAN (7 comps) connected directly to the 2nd router/switch/AP ("all in
    one") (this router connected to the internet also (all this by cable)
    those 2 routers have separate WAN IP's

    1st router with 2nd one connected to eachother using WIFI.

    will this work... and what kind of router do I need to make all those
    "threeside" connection possible

    LAN1 (8) ------ ( 8 cables + 1 WAN (internet)) --- ROUTER1 .......
    (wireless) ...... ROUTER2 --------(8 cables + 1 WAN (internet)) ----- LAN2

    thank U

    If you connect the two routers via wireless, as you've described, then you
    no longer have two separate LANs. On each router, the wireless AP is
    bridged to the wired Ethernet switch. Maybe you're OK with that. If so,
    then make sure that both LANs are configured with the same subnet address
    and the same subnet mask.
