|Ok, long story short...|
Recently built a house and have discovered the electrician was a cowboy to put it mildly. We are somehow losing 2MB speed between the master socket and the socket that is used for all the network equipment, that being:
- BT Home Hub (router)
- Sonos system
- Linksys media hub
- Ethernet bridge for netgear entertainer in living room
So there's quite a bit of kit in there, and the Sonos system in particular can't be moved as the speaker wires go into that cupboard.
What I'm wondering is whether I can plug in a single router (we have a spare Netgear one) to the master socket which all the PCs/laptops in the house use to connect to the internet etc, and then the other router is used as a sort of internal network, ie. to allow functionality of Sonos/Media Hub with the network, but not to connect to the internet?
I hope this isn't too stupid a question, but just trying to figure out a way around this as at the moment ripping out the telephone wiring is not an option.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer, even if it is just a simple 'no'! :)
