Run 2 routers on the same fiber line

Go to solution

Hi, I'm trying to get 2 routers to run off of the same fiber line that I have coming into the house, but I can't seem to get the both of them to run at the same time. I have set the second router up using the PPPoE username and password and it works, but the BT hub then loses it's internet connection. I have attached a diagram of the network that I'm trying to set up. I have everything working on the BT hub and want to keep it but run the second alongside it.

 I'm not sure if what I'm tring to do is possible, but I'm hoping it is. Any help would be great! 🙂

You cannot connect 2 routers to the same broadband line. You need to connect the hub to the line and the second router to the hub Lan to lan
