Hello there,

You can use wireless switch to split the connection

It's better to use only 1 wireless switch or router

Thanks

Or if they have both wireless AND wired connections, router 1: take one and hook the cable into Port 1, take the other end, and hook in into the Internet connection port on router 2. This will eventually look like this (after configuring of course)

PC's on router one will communicate with PC's on router 2 through the wired connection between routers. Kind of pointless, since I THINK a lot of home routers can handle 20+ wireless connections. And this "diagram" is just basic, and still requires some complex knowledge of setting up routers and WAN's. Is this for a business or home? just curious.
