Two routers?

Hi,

When I moved into my house the wifi was installed into the bedroom. 
I got the virgin installers to put a splitter on the downstairs cable so I have TV and Internet in the front room. 

Would it be possible to add a second router to the bedroom using the original installation?

Thanks

Not another hub no.

You can run some Ethernet cabling to the bedroom and install a wireless access point.

Or get a mesh system.

Re: Two routers?

Not without paying for a second account.  You're better off buying an access point and running an ethernet cable to the location you want the second router.

Alternatively, if you don't fancy running cables, you could look into buying a wireless mesh system which do broadly the same thing (at a cost of some performance) but without the wires.

You could try powerline adapters.
