Two Wireless Networks

By acmahajan ·
If we put both the wireless routers on the same switch so that the wired desktop and wireless laptops that are connected should be able to surf the internet,then it does not work , or it may have a conflict........so
With two wireless broadband connection (A1 and B1) when i connect A1 in Switch (we have only one switch) my desktop and wireless laptops works fine and we are able to browse the internet.

Our 2nd wireless broadband connection (B1) is only for our laptops.so that means our laptops can either switch to N/W A1 or to N/W B1 ,Now, if i want to print a document from B1 to A1 it will not print.

first question
>if we put both the broadband connection on the switch via ethernet port what will happen.And if there is a conflict what should i do to avoid it.will buying new swith solve the problem?

second question
>If I shitch 'ON' one of the wireless router of Two different Telephone company,i get a very very good surfing speed.
(Just to Note: Both of the wireless routers are 5-6 feet away)
What is the reason that I dont get a very good surfing speed if I switch on both the wireless routers.

third question
>if i want to print the document from wireless N/W B1 to wired N/W A1 what should i do ?

both of the networks are on different windows DNS servers
yes secure updates are turned on and our machine have access to updates itself.
urgent
thanks

you don't want to put your broadband connection on the switch. the internet connection won't work.

What you have to do to print to a printer on one network when your on a different network and both are wireless, connect to the wireless network that has the printer. That or buy another printer and put it on the network that doesn't have a printer.

now, why 2 networks? 2 networks is more work than one network. I'd dump the wireless router and get an Access point or get a managed switch that does VLAN.

I want to put wireless broadband connection on switch so that my 12 desktops should be able to surf the net,my desktop do not have wireless network card.
desktop are connected to switch and switch port is connected to broadband modem port(LAN 10/100).
I want to print bcoz my friends with wireless desktop may wish to print a document,.....for now what they have to do is disconnect B1 connect to A1 and then print.
Two networks bcoz at any point if one of my network goes down i can use another.

none of that makes sense.

you have two networks in case one does down but they both share 1 broadband connection. What's to go down?

you can't hook up your broadband to a switch because none of the ports on a switch can assign itself a IP address, subnet mask, DNS servers and gateway address and act as a NAT device. You could configure internet connection sharing on one computer and that hooks up to the broadband connection and all other comps use that computer as a router [NAT device] but then if that computer ever goes offline, no intenet connection. Better to use a broadband router.

I got what you what you want to say , let me clarify more we have 12 desktop computers that are connected to a SWITCH,(On switch we have Only A1 N/W)one of the switch ports goes to broadband DSL modem and other goes to Linksys wireless router (switch port is connected to ethernet port of Router).So,that our wired desktop and wireless laptops could surf and print.
Now we have Another BroadBand connection lets say it as B1 ..there are no seperate devices like above i.e modem and wireless are mearged into a single router(HUAWEI Router).
now,Based on this can you solve my abv 3 problems.
thank you
and also can you please tell me if i want to buy a new server (low end server) which one should i buy rack based or desktop based.
thanks again
