Hi. I currently have my Verizon DSL modem in my basement connected to my desktop computer. I would like to have internet connectivity to my laptop on my 3rd floor bedroom. I don't think a WiFi router would reach that far (perhaps it might), but could I just purchase an additional DSL modem, plug it in to the jack in my 3rd floor bedroom, and have another wired connection that way?
Most routers can be used as switches.
However an alternative may be to look at this:
All you do with this is plug it into the wall, run a cable from the router to the plug, then plug another homeplug in anywhere else in the house and run a network cable from it to the network port on the PC/Laptop.
Providing the cables are all on the same circuit (ie you don't have one ring for upstairs and an entirely different one downstairs) it'll work.

also, if you WERE to get another DSL modem upstairs, you'd have to first get a new separate phone line (you can't have two active connections on one phone line if memory serves correct) and you'd have to pay for another DSL account (can't use two modems with the same account, that one i know for sure)
