Connect a Second Wireless Router
Home wireless routers can be connected using Ethernet cable in the same way as wired routers are connected.
Connecting two home routers over wireless is also possible, but in most configurations, the second router can only function as a wireless access point instead of a router.
How do I connect a router to another router?
Set the Internet Gateway of router 2 to router 1’s IP address. Connect the two routers using a wired connection from any of port 1-4 in router 1 to any of port 1-4 in router 2. You can use a Wireless Media Bridge or Powerline Ethernet Kit to create a wired connection. DO NOT use router 2’s WAN port.
How do I setup 2 routers on the same network?
Connect the two routers.
Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into any LAN port of the primary router, then plug the other end of the cable into the LAN port on the back of the second router. If you are creating a LAN-to-WAN network, plug the other end into the WAN (or “Internet”) port on the secondary router.
Can routers be daisy chained?
The purpose of a daisy chain is to extend the number of computers that can be connected to the network, but only one router is acting as the main router and DHCP server; all other routers are simply there to connect the other computers. Another purpose is to add a wireless access point to a wired network.
What cable connects a router to a router?
Use an Ethernet cable to connect to the WAN port of a router to the WAN/Internet port of the high-speed modem. For the purpose of this wikiHow, we will refer to the router that’s connected to the modem as “Router 1.” Some routers act as a high-speed modem and router.
