    I was wanting to get a Alltel wireless air card and plug it into a Cradlepoint MBR800 router.
    I wanted to get the non-wifi Cradlepoint router because I already have a wifi Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT and I don't want to set everything back up again (like port forwarding).
    It would also be $20-$30 less and I wub DD-WRT.

    So I was wondering if there would be any problem with hooking a wired router into a wireless router.

    EDIT: Thanks Jiggah, will do.
    No I haven't bought it yet. I'm still wondering if I should do this or just spend ~$30 for a router with wifi.
    I think I might go with the wifi one. Quite simply because it would be quicker and easier than ordering online because it's already at the Alltel store. Although it's not a Cradle point, it's a Cyfre MR-819.

    Yes, just disable the dhcp server on one of the routers.

    if you have not bought the router yet, buy a network switch instead. cheaper, and no setup needed. (it acts like a usb hub for network ports in very simplified terms)
