I have Sky Broabrand, just wondering if i can buy a 2nd router to go with the Sky Router.

We have 3 filters which allows 3 different connection points, 1 at phone socket, and two in bedrooms. Sky Router is already in 1 bedroom, i like to buy a 2nd Belkin N+ router for other room, as wireless signal is poor, & my laptop takes Draft N, so should get better connection and faster speeds.

Is this possible to do, how would i go about setting 2nd router to work with my connection.

Anyway got a dummies gide how to do this step by step please. Many thanks.

You cannot have more than one ADSL Modem/Router connected to the phone line. You can connect a "Cable/DSL Router" (i.e. one with out a built-in modem) as a sub-router operating from the main router, but I don't think that would solve your problem.
