This question already has an answer here:
I previously used a modem/router that Verizon mailed to us when we signed up as our sole internet hub, but I've been experiencing strange/intermittent/slow internet speeds (almost always around 1.0/0.35Mbps) whenever more than a couple of devices were connected. I'm paying for FiOS Quantum (50/35Mbps). Every device is connected wirelessly, except for one IP phone. It turns out that the household I'm in has a total of 23 wireless devices, of which around 10-14 of them are constantly on the network. It seems that one router could not practically handle all those connections
So I re-created my network to the following setup:
basically, I have 2 routers
(primary:A , secondary:B). Router A is the original FiOS router, while B is just an old router I found laying around. Router B's DHCP is disabled, and both routers operate on different wireless settings.
My question is, with this setup, if I direct half of the devices to Router A, and the other half to Router B, and if the users on router B each start heavily streaming from YouTube/Netflix/etc., will that affect the speed of the users on Router A?
Edit: Sorry, what I meant in my question was, when I only had 1 router, I would experience issues if there were too many concurrent connections. What would happen now if there are too many users on Router B? Would connections on Router A still be okay?
Edit2: Thanks for the answers, but after hearing them, I've dug around and found Do cheap routers overload easily when there are many devices connected to it, and how do I fix it? and Network for a large house, which my question may be a duplicate of. Feel free to close this question if needed.
