    i have an older 2wire that is just a b connection.

    Can I hook up another wireless connection that is faster to it without them both fighting each other

    Yes, use a WAP (wireless access point) and turn off the wireless in the 2wire.

    Yes, I do this.

    I have a wireless N act as an access point and that connects to a powerline ethernet that connects to a 2wire on the other side of the house that connects to my dsl.
