Spliting a port with another router
Posted on 2005-04-19
I currently own a 4 port linksys router and i need mor ports for a small LAN party of about 7 people. I was wondering if i could have one of my friends bring over his linksys router and use it to "split" one of the ports on my router into more ports. To accomplish this i was going to connect the internet to my router, hook up me and 2 friends to it. Then, hook another router into the avaliable port and hooking 4 people up to it. Would this work and would there be any complications to this setup other than the jungle of cables that would be created in the process. any other tips about lan parties would be greatly appriciated also.
