    Any Benefit (s) To Using Two Wireless Routers


    My ISP sent me a combo modem/wireless router. I already have a Netgear 45 wireless router working well. I normally use a desktop that does not have a wireless card. My laptop does have a card.
    Am I better off just using the ISP modem/router or should I use both ?

    If your current system is working fine then leave it alone and put the new router away for a spare.
