Question: Can you hook up 2 modems in 1 house?

Yes, it is possible to use two (or even more than two) routers on the same home network. Conversely, a second router also helps when most clients in the home are wireless, but a few Ethernet devices in one room (like game consoles and file-sharing servers) could benefit from a wired setup.

Can you have 2 modems in the same house?

Ricks answer: Yes Michael, its indeed possible to have multiple cable modems in the same house, and it isnt all that uncommon. Just have the modem connected to both your router and the cable connection when you call Comcast in order to make the activation as quick and hassle-free as possible.

How do I connect two modems to the same network?

Set the Internet Gateway of router 2 to router 1s IP address. Connect the two routers using a wired connection from any of port 1-4 in router 1 to any of port 1-4 in router 2. You can use a Wireless Media Bridge or Powerline Ethernet Kit to create a wired connection. DO NOT use router 2s WAN port.

Do I need two modems?

No. You will only need one cable modem in your house. If you have more than one computer, we have modems available that support up to 4 wired and several wireless connections at once. You can also use one of our own basic modems and connect your own router or other networking devices.

Do I need a second modem?

No, you cant really use two modems together. What you need is a router. Or even an ethernet switch. The router doesnt have to be wireless, it could be wired.

Does a WiFi extender slow down Internet speed?

You may also be inclined to get a stronger home Wi-Fi plan. Its key that you use a dual-band Wi-Fi extender as the older, single-band extenders can actually slow down internet speeds as they attempt to provide a signal across great distances.

What does having 2 routers do?

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 thats too far away from the original router.

How do I setup multiple Wifi networks in my house?

Plug the non-Wi-Fi adapter into a power socket near your router and connect the two with an Ethernet cable. Plug the other adapter (after pairing, if necessary) into any other power socket in your home and it will create a new Wi-Fi network to which you can connect your important devices.

Will two Wi-Fi routers interfere with each other?

If both the existing and second routers are wireless, their Wi-Fi signals can interfere with each other, causing dropped connections and unpredictable network slowdowns. To avoid signal interference between two routers in a home, set the first router to use channel 1 or 6 and the second to use channel 11.
