Networking – Will the internet speed decrease if I connect two routers together


I have ethernet connection and its connected to a router and then to my computer using the LAN port of the router . Everything is fine but the router is kept on another floor and thus , I cannot use wifi on other devices as I get very weak signal . So , my question is that if I buy another router and connect it with my first router and finally connect my computer with the second router , will this affect my internet speed ?

Best Answer

If the two routers are connected through cable the answer is almost no (you pay a little overhead).

But you don't need another router, an access point (or a repeater) is a better choice.

Note: you must choose a different non-overlapping wireless channel for the 2nd router.
