Using 2 Routers on a home network
Posted on 2007-03-25
I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I thought I'd throw it out to the experts to answer that.
Situation - I have two routers, one is used to share a DSL internet connection, and the other is doing nothing right now. This works, but I would like to increase the file transfer rate between the two PC's (Which are right next to each other), Is there a way to connect each computer to two routers? One for connecting to the internet, the other for connecting to, or increasing the transfer rate between the PC's?
I tried just plugging them together, but it was one or the the other - Fast transfer rates between the PC's via the wired connection, but without an internet connection. Or Slower transfer rates over the wireless connection with an internet connection.
