      using 2 routers to form a network?

      Hi all,

      I now have two sky routers both fully working. I also have a PC in my sons room. Is it possible to connect the spare router to my sons PC and then wirelesly connect to my main PC/router which has the internet connection?

      I've just plugged them both in but not sure where to go from here!

      ANy advice (just trying to save buying another piece of equipment!)

      Re: using 2 routers to form a network?

      Why not just cut out the other router full stop!

      Connect one (closest) to the router which you can use as your diagnose PC if the wireless plays up on your sons PC you have an ethernet connection to check through router config page!

      And connect your sons PC via Wireless you can obtain a 20 USB device from Sky to use?
