      Two ADSL Routers on same telephone line

      I've got a Sagam and a Netgear router. Sagem is a new router following new install at new house, whilst Netgear one is old router from old house. When I moved I took out a new contract with Sky and didn't transfer my old account across. In new house, the powerline adapters don't work as upstairs seems to be on completely different circuit - tried all sorts including wireless but even moving wireless router around house, I have loads of dead spots. However, I do have a telephone socket upstairs and therefore wondering if its OK to find my Sky Broadband Username and Password on the Sagem and then change the Netgear settings to match - effectively having two routers on the same telephone line. Is that OK - would that work? Would I cause a problem with the line or even would Sky get upset?

      Only one router can connect at a timw, you cannot have two on the same line at the same time.
