My son has a couple of computers in his room. The speed of the internet is unacceptable.
Basically, here is the environment.
Uverse router transmit wireless to several computers in the house. I have a laptop here in the kitchen that has good Internet response time.
However the son's computers are very slow.
Now, I have a Linksys router in the closet that I was wondering if I could hook up in the son's room, and then possiblly hook ethernet cables to the son's computers.
In other words:
Uverse router....wireless to the ....Linksys router....ethernet to son's computer
At least I could put up the router on top of the desk and it might get better reception than the computers under a desk.
If this is possible, do I have to install the router? If so, where? And How do I stop it from dhcp assigning ip addresses (given that the Uverse router is already doing this)?
I know they have range extenders but that would be an additional cost, and the router is already paid for and sitting in my closet ready for action (after the Uverse router replaced it).
