Hello, my parents have an internet connection in their office and the wireless does not reach their house. The same phone line is in the house and the office. If they bought a second router and only "plugged in" one router at a time in either the house or the office, would this work? They dont wish to use both at the same time but want the option to have internet in the house and the internet company is saying they need a second phone line. Many thanks

no they do not need a second phone line, If the office is powered off the same grid as the house electric then they can use a power line internet sender, if they require more than one pc connected or would like wireless, then they could attach a second router to that powerlinr sender to act as a switch to increase wireless range and offer ethernet ports, a quick search on google will show how to turn a wireless router into a switch in about 30 seconds.

If the office is not powered by the house electrical circuit then you could use a wireless range booster near to the office in the house, but this will obviously only allow a wireless connection.

I hope this helps
