      Off label uses for Sky Wireless Connector?

      I have given up trying to use my Sky Wireless Connector for the purpose intended and switched to a Home Plug solution. It kept going to sleep and it made the new features on the iPad app unusable.

      So..it made me wonder whether the box could be configured to be used as a router or a repeater. It looks very similar to the TL-WR702N which has all these features. Of course it will depend on the firmware Sky have put on it and they are notorious for trying to look things down.

      You can convert a router into an extender by using the Wireless connector. Likewise you can use it on a non wireless PC to access the router by wireless.
