Can I have 2 routers connected to isp?

Specs: Macintosh
I live in a granny flat at the rear of main house, which is where the router is that I connect too, to get my broadband wirelessly. I want to know if I can connect a router up in my granny flat to the isp so I can have my own seperate network? Could someone please tell me if this would work, and how to go about it?

Thanks in advance....

You can't use two routers in the same network setup connected to the same internet account.
You would have to subscribe to a new internet account if you want to be able to use your own router independently of the existing one.

If you just want a stronger wireless signal using the existing internet account you need to install a "wireless range extender" (also called a wireless repeater) like the three shown at top of this page:

The range extender does not replace the existing router. It sits between the existing router and your PC to boost the router's wireless range.

Thank you for your response, appreciate it. Looks like I'll just have to disconnect
internet if I want to make my own network.

Thanks again

You get the extender and then hook your own router to that.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
