Why Would You Want To Connect Two Routers Together?
Often when you buy a wireless router you will find that your wireless signal does not stretch throughout your house, or that when too far away from the router your connection becomes too weak to use properly.
This can be a huge problem especially if you have multiple people or devices needing to use your connection throughout your home.
There are many ways to fix this problem, including buying a router with extended range or buying a Wi-Fi range extender.
Another option to solve this problem is to daisy chain two routers together. This means to connect two routers together using a wired connection.
By doing this you will be able to connect to the same network using two different routers which therefore increases the signal strength throughout your house. This is especially useful if you have an old router or two lying about the house as it means it doesn’t cost anything extra.
In the rest of this article we will explain a little more on daisy-chaining.
