      BT Home Hub as Repeater

      I'm trying to use my old BT Homehub as a repeater.
      I used the instructions here:
      Sagem and BT Home Hub
      ...but that's for a Sagem router and I have a Netgear.
      I'm running into problems at this point:

      Go to the PC connected to the SAGEM and access it at http://192.168.0.1.

      find under wireless something to do with repeater or wds and scan for ssid's
      Check the box under the WDS header of the table, next to the SSID of the Repeater hub

      .....as I can't find this option when I access the Netgear router....can anyone help?

      Thanks
      Henry

      Re: BT Home Hub as Repeater

      The DG834GT doesn't have any options for repeaters by default with the official Sky firmware so I guess your out of luck. I know the DG-Team firmware which I use does have options for repeaters however I'm pretty sure it only works with 2 Netgear routers and not a Home Hub.
