When I have had connection issues one of the inevitable questions that my ISP asks is "If you use a different modem/router does the problem go away?"
Well, I now have a spare modem/router and am consequently wondering if there are any technical reasons why I can't put them both on my ADSL line using a suitable splitter on my modem cable (RJ11 in, 2x RJ11 out).
- the splitter will cause a certain amount of interference on the line
- I have to ensure each router uses a different SSID and WiFi channel
If I lose connection, I can then from my PC quickly see if I can connect through the "other" router/modem and thus rule modem/router problems in or out?
