Hello,

I am trying to hook up 2 2wire routers on my home network. One is already configured with all of my settings, and the other is an older 2wire router I got from a friend. I would like to have 2 access points in my house due to thick walls. Both are ready to be hooked up but it seems that My internet connection completely stops altogether when both are hooked up at the same time. Does anyone know how to do this correctly? any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Diregard different brand or type of router this is the basic principle wired:

If you're lucky both of your routers will support WDS -- in which case you may be able to connect the second one wirelessly to the first. See maker's website support.
