I appreciate your help in advance...
Currently, I have a Cable Modem that is connected to a Belkin Wireless Router. I use the Belkin to connecto to the internet on my laptop. I do not use a desktop PC at all, but constantly move around the house with my laptop. I also have a PS3, which I utilize for online gaming. This PS3 is also connected to the Belkin Wireless Router. For some reason, anytime my wife turns on the laptop while I am playing PS3, I get booted off, and vice versa.
To mitigate this problem, I purchased a Netgear N-Band Wireless Router, as I assumed the Belkin Wireless Router I had was simply "cheap". I am still running into the same problems.
Instead of writing this inquiry first, I have purchases a Linksys Etherfast 4 port Wired Router, with the idea of connecting as follows:
Cable Modem ===> Linksys Etherfast Wired Router (4-Port)===> Belkin Wireless Router/Netgear Wireless Router
My hope is to have to separate networks: (1) strictly for my wife to utilie the laptop and (2) strictly for me to use the PS3.
My question is: Is this possible? Is there anything I need to be mindful of during set-up (dynamic/static IP issues, etc. etc.)?
I have had about 2 months of grief here, and my wallet is emptying by the minute. Hopefully somebody can help!
