Network within a network?

Hi everyone,

I've recently moved into a new flat above a pub. The pub has internet which we are free to use but there it is an open network with no password protection and I don't feel comfortable connecting all my devices to it.

My question is: Is it possible to create another network within the existing one? Perhaps by using another router with a password protecting it?

Thanks,

Jon

Ah, ok great. So I just change that in the routers' settings?

Yes, you do. Make sure that the third octet of the IP address is the one you change.

You're getting excellent advice from mgmcc, I recommend that you follow it to the letter.
