new ugg boots Two wireless routers on at the same time

My bro and I will be renting rooms at someone’s house soon and they already have DSL with a wireless network. However, they’ll be charging my bro and 20 bucks a month each to use it to help cover the DSL and phone bills (Verizon charges a pretty penny for just having a phone.).

So I’ve decided to instead have my own cable high speed internet since I’m going to have cable TV hooked up to my bedroom and the TV Internet bundle cost is only 68 bucks. Paying for cable TV only and 40 bucks for sharing the DSL will bring it up to 85 bucks, so you can see the financial motivation behind this.

But now, I’ll be sharing the cable connection between my room and my bro’s. I already have a wireless router and would like to use it to share the connection. My question now is if having two wireless networks in the house will cause disruption of service or some other form of undesirable interference. I don’t know if the existing network in the house is Wireless B or G, but my router is an older Linksys one running Wireless B.

Any thoughts, comments, ideas greatly appreciated!

The two signals could conflict with each other making it impossible for either of you to get a connection. Make sure you have your frequencies set at opposite ends of the spectrum. Have one at 2.4 Ghz, and the other at like 2.49 Ghz or whatever the highest setting available is. I live in an apartment complex and occasionally have to adjust the frequency so my neighbor’s wireless won’t interfere.

As long as they aren’t on the same channel you shouldn’t have a problem. A lot of routers come stock set on channel 6, and a lot of people don’t change it, which can cause problems. Also, just being on a seperate channel might not be enough,

since the channels overlap eachother.
