If chaining two routers together, make sure each is in a different subnet. Otherwise you may cause a routing conflict.

Not sure if anyone clearly answered your question, but your setup does not bottleneck the performance of the newer Cisco router. The main bottleneck is in the 3Mbps upstream connection. Internally, with your Wireless G, you have a theoretical 54Mbps wireless connection and 100Mbps wired ethernet connection. Then, with your Wireless N router, you have 300+300Mbps wireless connection and 100Mbps wired ethernet connections. If you are transferring files in and about your house (e.g. back-ups or similar), you might want to put the devices on your Wireless N system. This is what I do...I have a Wireless N system that is for my "back-ups". That way, when I am backing up a computer, I don't bring down the whole network to a crawl.
