Is it possible to plug in a different router at night and use that until morning then switch back to the other router and have them both work during their respective times? I've been looking everywhere for an answer to this question, but it seems like no one has ever asked this specific question.

Hey there!

Technically this should be possible, but my first question would be why you would want to do this? Are you talking about a home network or a work environment?

This is for home. There are issues with "Who's" router is being used so trying to solve the issue. So after connecting the 2nd router I can unplug it and put the first one back in and it will work just fine correct?

It gets a bit more technical than that.

What you say can only be done if the routers use the same addressing scheme.
But this also means that both routers can never be on at the same time, or you will have conflicts.

Still not sure what you are trying to achieve, but just try to swap them out. If it works then you're settled.
If not, then swap them back and I'll be able to give you a bit more detailed instructions :)

Olrik
