    For the past couple of months I've suffered in the top floor of my apartment with a horrible connection to my wireless router on the first floor. Now I'm not well versed in setting up a network but I connected another router through Ethernet to the top floor so I could actually use the internet reliably. I connected them through each routers Ethernet ports in what I believe is LAN to LAN connection. After connecting to this new router I am able to access some websites (Netflix, Reddit, Facebook) but a select few are not visible (Namely Anyone have an explanation for why this might be the case and be able to guess how I fucked this thing up. @Jason Tate

    Edit: Actually it seems that the connection is simply wavering. I basically just plugged in the second router and called it a day. Is there something else I should be doing to idealize it for this scenario?
