Default Two routers connected, sharing internet?

you could just run a cat5 wire from your router to your NAS/printer. this would be the cheapest solution.
otherwise you would have to buy another wireless device (router, switch, access point) to connect the NAS/printer to and access separately.
this would probably be more complicated and costly. i would say stick with the cat5 wire.

Please Help.

Thanks !

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Configure the second router as follows:
Disable DHCP
Give it a static IP address
Leave the WAN port disconnected
Connect a cable from the first router to a LAN port on the second router, this will allow DHCP service from the first router which will assign IP addresses to wireless clients
Rename SSID and change wireless channels to avoid wireless collisions
