Conversely, a second router also helps when most clients in the home are wireless, but a few Ethernet devices in one room (like game consoles and file-sharing servers) could benefit from a wired setup.

Apr 17, 2020 · The only risk you take is the speed differential of the two routers (if they are different routers). If the main is a Wireless-AC router and the old/second one is a Wireless-G router, connecting to the “access point” will, of course, limit your connection speed to G on those devices.
