I'm in need of some help to create a solid network for my two computers. Currently I have 1 operational computer connected to my router downstairs via the world's longest ethernet cable to my room. It is just simply too much hassle to run a second cable to my second pc that is being built now as I put the first cable being the wall.
My theory is that if I purchased a second router and connected it to the primary router via the already existing cable then run the 2 computers via ethernet cable to the second router. And have my PS4, Apple TV, etc all connected via wifi to the primary router as they are currently.
Would this even work?
Would I suffer from a weaker/slower connection by using what in effect is an extender.
Any better ideas for a possible solution?
