      Not possible. Use either homeplugs or a wireless xbox adapter.

      Re: wirelessly connect two routers

      The Sky firmware doesn't make it possible to link two routers like that. To be fair you would be better using the HomePlugs, which Exdee suggested, not WiFi. Most gamers complain that the WiFi is too slow.

      Take a look at this thread for further ideas:

      How to connect two Routers together

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
