Router used as a Network Hub?

  1. Can a router be connected to another router and used as a network hub to increase the amount of users that can be connected to the network? Or do I need to buy a network hub?

    Yes, you can do it no problem. You just have to tweak some settings to make sure the two routers do not interfere with each other.

    Please make a search for any of the (must be a dozen by now) "I want to daisy-chain two routers and I didn't bother to use the search feature" threads on these very forums.
