      Extending WiFi range

      Hello all

      I would like to know if I can use my old sky router to extend my wifi range from what I get now. I have just starting using the new sky hub but still have the old sky netgear router.

      sorry if silly question, I have no knowledge of these things.

      thanks in advance.

      You can use your old router to extend your network, but you will have to join them using an ethernet cable or homeplugs. Full instructions here-
