I have a Ethernet cable that has approx speed of 250 Mbps but then I dont get enough range in one of the rooms, so I was thinking of splitting the main Ethernet into two cables and then sending one of that to a different room which has a router which transmits in pretty good speed. But I'm not sure how to split the cable into two. I've heard about network switches, but it shows something like 5-Port 10/100MBPS with the product title, which I assume 100 Mbps is the max speed? I'm not sure, can someone throw some light on it, because I want more than 100 Mbps to be transmitted from the wires. And will it work if one Ethernet cable be split into two where the two cables can be plugged into two different routers?
The arrangement might sound stupid, but there are other reasons behind it. The whole network concept just terrifies me.
Sorry, if this is not the right place for this question. Thanks in advance :D
Current setup: Network from my neighbours moden is bough to my routers LAN cable which makes wifi system here, but its pretty slow(might be a modem issue), connecting to a different modem fixes the network speed, but the new modem has less range, so I was planning to use 2 modems but with only one ethernet cable. Hence my idea to split the cable into two and give two ethernet to two modem.
