Can you hook up two routers together

Published: 06.02.2018

You should be able to use the same network name; the IP addresses are what manage the distinction. Enter a unique SSID.

If I'm envisioning this correctly, your router is downstairs and you want the signal in an upstairs room and the upstairs room has PCs that will be wired to a switch. Previously, we had the Wii connected to the Linksys and it worked fine. Specify the secondary router's IP address.

Using a network with two routers makes sense in a small business when you run out of ports on a first router to connect computers or devices to. I need to reconnect my previous router Linksys in order to connect my Wii to the internet. If the signal from the downstairs router is strong enough to contact an upstairs bridge, I don't see why the signal can't reach the PCs directly.

What if the modem houses the primary router and there are two different bands 2. After you find a location, power on your client router and disconnect your laptop from the main wireless network. Generally, you'll want your newest and most fully-featured router as your base router.

How to extend wifi range with another router

RG Richard Green Jul 22, I wanted devices connected wireless to either router to be able to work as together as a Windows HomeGroup home network for printer and file sharing.

I have mobile connections and wifi in my house.. Now, my system works like a dream. Once you have the secondary router configured, you can place it where you want it to repeat the signal.

      How do I bridge together two wireless routers? This is useful for file sharing and other purposes.
