Over the last few days, we have been having some problems with our wireless connectivity around the house.
We have a Virgin Media Superhub which is connected to our wireless router.
Would I be able to connect another wireless router to the superhub in addition to the first one with a different network name to see if this solves our connection problems? Then the computers can connect to the router that has the best signal.
Could I just plug the second router into one of the other spare ethernet ports on the superhub and run both routers?
I've read other posts that say you need to disable the DHCP server on the second router to avoid conflicts.
I've also read somewhere that I could connect the second router to a spare port on the first one to extend it?
I think you're right about it only allowing 1 router.
I'm now looking at the option of adding the netgear router as a wireless access point. If there is a problem with the wireless signal from the old router, the access point should take over the wireless part of the routing.
