How to Connect Two Routers on a Home Network
I currently have a linksys router connected to my modem but i want to buy another router to use it as a network extender. To port forward dual routers, you must first point the first router in the chain to the second router and the second router to the designated computer. Then from Router B, you use the target computer's IP. You could, but would gain nothing from doing so. Why would you want to do that??
While most home computer networks use only one router, adding a second router makes sense in a few situations. A second router upgrades a wired network to support a larger number of wireless devices. An additional router extends the wireless range of a home network to reach dead spots and to network a wired device that's too far away from the original router. In addition, a second router creates a separate subnetwork within a home to stream video among some devices without slowing down connections to others. Making it all work requires just a few steps.
