Mutliple wireless access points help

  Why wont it work 11:59 21 Jul 2007

Hi, I am getting quite confused with a wireless problem. I have a large house, with enough people in it that there are often 12 people connected at any one time to our current wireless router. We have 20mb broadband (and it actually runs at that speed!!) so people can never actually get anywhere near the full bandwidth.

What I was wondering is, can I add another wireless router somehow? As in, get another router attach it with an ethernet cable and set it to transmit via a channel which doesnt interfer with the current one. Then I could set it so half the laptops (all wireless G 54mbps) access one router and half the other, so they would all still be part of the same network but there would (technically) be twice the bandwidth to anyone laptop. Upgrading to wireless N or something is not an option as the laptops already have wireless G.

Sorry if I sound confusing, but if anyone has any ideas of what I need to buy/ how to set it up etc I would be most grateful.
