    Networking Predicament (Wired and Wireless Networks)
    I will try to make this is clear as possible. Here is my setup currently (Minus a whole bunch of things connected to both routers that I am not worried about.

    Code:
    Cable Modem -> Linksys Wired Router -> iMac
    				    -> Linksys Wireless Router -> MacBook
    What I am trying to figure out is how to share files between my iMac and MacBook which are connected to different routers.

    I can't get the iMac hooked up to the Wireless router or MacBook to the Wired so basically I need to figure out how to connect to another part of my network

    I am slightly confused by your diagram, is the wireless router connected to the wired router or is it stand alone?

    The wireless router is connected to one of the ports in the Wired router.

    The wired has an ip of 192.168.2.1 and the wireless is 192.168.1.1 so they don't conflict with each other (this is how linksys says you need to set them up so that they can both function on the same network)

    Solved my issue.

    Had to remove the cable going into the internet port on the wireless router, connect that to one of the standard ports. Disable the wireless router as a DHCP server and make sure it is not set up as a gateway
