Combining wired and wireless home network

Everything currently works well with a home network, with a Netgear router 10/100 and a number of hubs hanging off the end.

I want to add some wireless capability, but I don't want to replace the netgear router.

I picked up a Belkin 802.11b w/l router for $10 (lots of good rebates).  Can I plug this into one of the downstream hubs and pick up wireless capability that way?

Or does this wireless router need to replace the Netgear wired router?  I don't want to do this because the Netgear is faster than the cheaper Belkin

thanks

The Belkin works by copying (spoofing) the Mac address of whats plugged into it so in YOUR situation (with a small LAN) the answer is YOU NEED to put the wireless router in INSTEAD of the netgear, sory if this is bad news =(
