I currently have one router for my TalkTalk dsl broadband.

If i connected another one up via another socket, would it affect my initial boradband speed.

not really, is it going to be a wireless connection? i have a fixed connetion and a wireless and they don't seem any slower.
#2
Possibly, I did a similar thing and it was fairly slower.

I don't think doing that will dramatically reduce speed but if you download a lot then you could notice a drop in speed.
#3
No unless that router is sharing the connection to somewhere else, then it will obviously affect your internet speed from the first router.
Remember to put a filter in.
#4
I think if you hook another router up it will break your house.
#5
the point was to get two full speed interent routers, rather than two slow connections from the one router.

if you get what i mean
#6
it won't actually work, you can only have one active dsl connection on a line

They'll knock each other out of synch and all you will have is problems.
