2 DSL Access Points/Routers

  1. Is it possible to have two routers in two different places in a house at two different locations? I want to have a router in my room (wireless not necessary). This is on one end of the house, so if I use a wireless router in my room, nothing on the other end of the house can reach it. So I'm wondering if I can have a router in my room, and then have a wireless router elsewhere in the house, not plugged into the router in my room (because it would not reach). I'm using DSL so I have to work through phone lines so I'm not sure if I can do this.

    Use networking over A/C power with this adaptor

    Using your existing DSL or cable connection to the ISP
    Code:
    modem---existingRouter ---- HDXB101... A/C... HDXB101----One system or a router
                    |
                    +  existing systems

    That looks really cool, but will that actually work with power outlets on opposite sides of the house?

    I'll have to do a lot more research before I buy something so expensive in the hopes that it will work. Thanks for showing it to me, though!

    Well I looked at some reviews and most people are kind of unsatisfied... I will just call Qwest and ask them if they have a solution to my problem.
