Question: Is having 2 routers bad?

Yes, it is possible to use two (or even more than two) routers on the same home network. The benefits of a two-router network include: Improved wireless reach (signal range): Adding a second wireless router to an existing Wi-Fi network can extend its reach to accommodate far away devices.

What happens if you have 2 routers?

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 far apart should 2 routers be?
