I am trying to set up all my folding rigs...I got them put together finally and all I need now is to get them all hooked up to my network. At first I had planned to put wireless PCI cards in them, but then I began to wonder if I could plug a router into my other router and basically turn my 4 ports into 7. I currently have one spare wireless card and probally 30 wired ethernet cards. I see that I shouldn't have any trouble getting an old beat up router off eBay for much more than some idiot's overpriced shipping. So here is what I had in mind...
I would have four folding machines plugged into the second router and one other fold only machine going wireless. I would have two other "main" rigs
(that will be folding in their spare time as well), but they'll be plugged into the main router and a laptop will occationally surf wirelessly as well.
Will this setup work? I have never tried to plug a router into a router and I don't want to do some thing stupid like fry my cable modem or some thing. My router manual states that it can support upto 50 wireless connections.
