      Combining 2 Netgear routers?

      Hi,

      I have 2 netgear routers DG834GT from Sky but only using one. I have a big house and the router does not reach all areas although I have upgraded the aerial. Is it possible to hardwire the 2nd router to the existing router to improve the range? Like a wireless repeater?

      Here's hoping. Any advice greatfully received.

      Cheers

      You could use a set of homeplugs to send the broadband signal around the house using the electrical wiring.

      Hi,

      I wouldn't trust the wiring! However one part I am trying to get wifi is an annexe that is on a separate system. I thought you could bridge routers?
