2 Routers, 1 Internet Connection
Posted on 2010-09-23
I have an old PC sat ina cupboard sharing out my tunes via my wireless router to my laptop, speakers etc.
However, this slows down the network speed for other members of my household.
I have a spare router, for this example, we'll call it router#2, and the original sky router router#1.
I'd like to be able to create a seperate network and attach router#2 to the streaming PC, specifically for that purpose...that's simple, and I'm happy to do it.
However, i'd still like to use an internet connection to download tunes, apps etc to the storage fo that PC.
Can anyone suggest a way of creating a seperate network to stream my media on, whilst also having access to the internet? Is it just a case of plugging router#2 in to another phone line and entering my sky details? Will this conflict with router#1 being attached?
Or possibly a way of getting my laptop to talk to both routers 1 internet, 1 streamining? Perhaps bridging them or similar?
Any advice would be welcome please.
Thanks in advance
