Connect the wireless router to your PC only.  Do not plug anything into the WAN/Internet port.
In the wireless router:
1) Setup the wireless SSID and security -> Save the changes
2) Set the router's ip to one compatible with the FVS318 and out of the way of the other LAN devices (i.e.
3) Turn off DHCP ->Save the Changes
4) Connect one of the wireless' lan ports to the FVS318 and reboot your PC.

The FVS318 will act as the DHCP and any PC's connected to the wireless (wired or not) will be on the same network; but, you won't ever be using the WAN/Internet port on it.

I've told you what to do and how to do it is in the manual I also gave you a link to.  The only thing you need is the ip address range of the router you want to plug it into.
