      Connect 2 routers wirelessly

      Does anyone know if it's possible to connect 2 sky routers wirelessly? My current router is connected to my phoneline in the hall, but I have a spare Sky router that someone gave me. My plan was to put this behind my TV so I could connect my BluRay and Sky box to it via ethernet, then connect wirelessly to the other router. This saves running cables from my TV to the router in the hall.

      Cheers

      No, they don't work as wireless bridges. Better to look into homeplugs

      As IWasNotTheEnemy has mentioned, no it won't work.

      Home Plugs have been discussed a lot on this forum. Another name for them is Powerline adapters.

      Once you have installed a pair, you can then configure the 2nd router to act as a WiFi Switch and connect both the Sky+ HD STB and your BluRay player to the 2nd router. The Homeplugs will then plug directly into the two routers.

      Good Luck
