Are 2 Routers Possible


[link to this post]
 
Is it possible to run 2 modem/routers off the same Broadband connection i.e. to have one connected to a PC upstairs and one connected to an internet ready TV

Yes, but not in the way I think you mean.

They have to be connected to each other. People do it quite often for a variety of reasons. But I think you mean having them independently, on different phone sockets? Is that right?

You can't do that.

I don't know much about internet-ready TVs. Do they only have ethernet connections, not wireless?

Pretty much all "Internet Ready" TVs have Ethernet. Some also have built-in wireless, some support USB Wi-Fi dongles. It can depend on both model and purchase options.

The OP needs to connect his TV via one of these methods - he doesn't need two routers.

The easist way to connect up your internet ready TV is via your existing router, using DLAN or similar to provide a link to the TV's Ethernet port using the mains. Works for me with no complications.
