Is it possible to have a Modem hooked to a Router, and then extend that Router to another Router for distribution?

I have a situation where I have an incoming internet connection on one floor with users there, then I have users on another floor but I don't want to run 4 long wires to the router on the first floor. Wireless is not an option as it proves very unreliable in this building.

You can use a router or a switch for what you want to do. Most switches are fairly smart so you shouldn't need a crossover cable to connect between the two. My setup looks like this:

modem-->router-->wireless access point-->switch
