How to Connect a PC to a Wired Ethernet Network in Windows Vista
While most home computer networks use only one router, adding a second router makes sense in a few situations. A second router is used to upgrade a wired network to support wireless devices. An additional router can extend the wireless range of a home network to reach dead spots and to network a wired device that's too far away from the original router.
However, if you prefer to use ethernet, here are some configurations that should work well. Note: Do not connect any devices like a computer, switch, or another Wifi point to a Wifi point during setup. Learn more. Switches and Mesh Wifi points may be connected in any order as long as they're downstream of the Primary Wifi point and you may connect several of these devices via wired ethernet. All Mesh Wifi points and any other wired devices like printers should be wired "downstream" of the Primary Wifi point in order for things to work properly.
