    Hello skytech,

    You can "split the Internet" using a wireless router (which will also give you Wifi -- see below), or you can use a switch to allow more physical connections.

    It is possible to setup Wifi with a wireless router.

    You connect [what I assume you have] your modem to the wireless router.

    Can I setup my "new connection" like below? (note: the *router belong to the flat owner. I do not want to touch it.)

    Now: Internet source from wall (fibre terminal)>modem>*router>Ethernet Cable connect to PC in my room

    New connection: Internet source from wall (fibre terminal)>modem>*router>Ethernet Cable connect to [new router]/[new switch]>Ethernet Cable connect to any PC.

    Yes, that is how you would do it.
