Non-wireless conection between two laptops.

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I would like to exchanges files between several laptops without using wireless connections, or a hub o a switch, by using two routers. I attached a diagram to shorten explanations. I dont need alternative solutions, but an answer to this specific situation.  Will the attached setup work or do I need to connect the cables differently or use a different type of cable between the routers (regular Ethernet cable)?
