Can I use two hubs with one broadband

Sometines connection gets weak in some rooms so I wonder if I can set another router in the house to boost the connection. Any idea?

Re: Can I use two hubs with one broadband

Only one hub can be used to connect to the internet connection (= your phone line).

 

I suspect your question is about wifi, or rather a lack of it in parts of your house. There are 2 solutions:

1) use an ethernet cable to add a Wireless Access Point (if you are technical, then you might be able to use an old router to do this)

2) Use a "Wireless Extender"... this connects to your current wifi, then 'rebroadcasts' it further into your house.
