How to Connect Two Routers Easily in 2021

This blog will tell you how to connect two routers; they can be combined in two ways.

  1. Use ethernet cable
  2. Use the wireless system

Use Ethernet Cable

  • The First is to determine which router is primary and which router is secondary.
  • Keep both routers near your computer so that you can access them quickly and then later place them in their place as per your convenience.
  • Now you determine which connection you need to have LAN to LAN or LAN to WAN.
  • LAN to LAN-To connect the two routers in this network, you have to increase your WiFi range. Computers and phones connected to this network can share files among themselves.
  • LAN to WAN-In this, you have to create another network from the leading system, due to which all the computers connected to this network cannot share files among themselves.

First Router (Main Router) Setup

  1. Now connect your main router via Modem via an Ethernet cable and then join your computer to the router via another Ethernet cable.
  2. Enter the main router ip address in your web browser.
  3. If you are creating a LAN to WAN network, then save its DHCP settings 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.50
  4. And if you are making a WAN to WAN network, then set the DHCP setting default.

Second Router (Secondary Router) Setup

  1. Now open the page of another router and make the IP address such that it matches the previous 192.168.1.1
  2. If you are creating a LAN to WAN network, then DHCP server on the secondary router suit and out the address between 192.168.2.2 and 192.68.2.50
  3. If you are making a LAN to WAN network, turn off the second router’s DHCP service. 
  4. I. Now, if the routers are wireless, then you have to manually set them so that the signals of the two routers do not interfere with each other. If the first router is set between 1 and 6, then the second router will be 11.
  5. Now connect both Reuters via Ethernet cable in their place.

Note – If you create a LAN to LAN network, plug the Ethernet cable into both routers’ LAN port.

If you are creating a WAN network from a LAN, plug the Ethernet cable into the first router’s LAN router and the WAN port of the second router.

Use Wireless System

  1. The First is to determine which router is primary and which router is secondary.
  2. Keep both routers near your computer so that you can access them quickly and then later place them in their place as per your convenience.

First Router (Main Router) Setup

  1. Now connect your main router via Modem via an Ethernet cable and then join your computer to the router via another Ethernet cable.
  2. Enter the main router ip address in your web browser.
  3. Now, connect the other router to the computer with an Ethernet cable, open the configuration page, and find the internet or wireless setup page.
  4. Now select “bridge mode” or “repeater mode” in  “connection type”.

Secondary Router Setup

  1. Now open the page of another router and make the IP address such that it matches the previous 192.168.1.1
  2. Now, set the name of your second router. If your first router’s name is A, then the second router’s name can be B.
  3. Now both routers are connected, both routers should not be placed over large distances if possible, keep both routers in the same line.

Note -Both routers work best when there is no barrier between the two routers, such as electrical wall equipment or metal material like aluminum. Electrical devices cause more interference to the router’s signal.

You need to follow these are the procedures to connect two routers at home. Using a remote desktop connection manager, you can get some other home automation ideas.
