Hi all, I am trying to re-configure my entire home network. My weapons of choice are as follows: Comcast's Cisco Modem Linksys E3000 Router Linksys WRT160n Router Linksys WRT54G Router Sony Playstation 3 Dell (New) Studio XPS 15 Laptop (WIN 7) IBM (10 years old) Desktop (WIN XP) Acer (3 years old) Desktop (WIN 7) HP (6 years old) Laptop (WIN XP) Here are my questions: Is it possible to hook all three routers up to the one modem (basement, first floor, second floor). Without losing their perks? (By perks, I mean the E3000 allows remote backups to an external HDD and guest accounts). Are there benefits to doing this? Will it increase my range? Should I set the n-routers to specifically n rather than mixed signals, and the same for g? The E3000 offers a faster 5GHz signal while the other 2 routers offer 2.4GHz signals, how will this come into effect? Ideally, the XPS and PS3 will be on the middle level so wouldn't that be the best place for the E3000? Does the PS3 have an n wireless built into it or is it g (old, fat model)? I am running multiple OS's on multiple platforms as well as a wireless printer, will it be difficult to network them all together in the end with 3 different router connections? What are your suggestions and what would you do if you were facing this predicament? My last point is that my connection has (prior to this) solely relied on a one-router, one access point connection prior to this. I have never used the E3000 before this as it is brand new and I haven't hooked it up yet, I was using the WRT160n and it dropped out all the time. I figured by setting up a router on each level of the home it would increase the range, but i'm not sure if they will take away from one another or if it will actually be beneficial. Sorry for all the questions and all the text, I would appreciate any help whatsoever. I'm gonna try to do this on my own so the more I know the better. Thanks for all of your help!!
