      Bridging with sky routers to sky Q hub.

      I have SKY Q, with an ER110 Hub on sky broadband (normal sky 'phone line, not fibre). I also have 2 old sky routers (1 sr102-c and 1 sr102-z) which I would like to use as bridges, preferably wirelessly, but can live with wired. One bridge would be in the living room with sky q box, tv and bluray attached (all wired) and the other would be in dining room with old non-wifi desktop pc and two usb servers attached (all wired). Can I do this, and if I can, how do I set them all up?

      Re: Bridging with sky routers to sky Q hub.

      I don't think that you can do this wirelessly but if you disable wi-fi and dhcp on one of the sr102s you should be able to connect a lan port on this sr102 to a lan port on the ER110 and connect other spare lan ports to each of your AV devices using cat5e cables.

      Although you could use the 2nd sr102, from your description there doesn't appear to be any reason to do so if what you refer to as servers are actually usb connected storage devices. A long cat5e cable between the ER110 and the desktop PC should suffice.

      If you haven't done so already you may have to disable wi-fi on the SkyQ box.
