      Anyone changed their Sky Netgear router into a Wireless extender?

      As i have this as a spare router now am thinking of using this as a wireless extender upstairs.

      found a guide to do it, but there was a bit about disba the firewall and could not see a way of doing this on this router. Have sky pulled this bit?

      The router has been flashed to i could upgrade the firmware too.

      Any help would be great

      Pretty sure i did that, how do i know for sure its running Netgear firmware?

      How did you get around the firewall bit, as the guide tells me to disable it but there is no option for that.

      Will post the guide up (its just a standard one for any router) later as saved on other pc
