      Wireless Bridging for Sky Anytime+

      Hi, im about to have skyHD installed soon, and i am looking for a few options to resolve the fact that my router is not in the same room as the box. I have a sky D-Link Router connected to the internet via the master socket and it is my main router. I also have a Sky Netgear D834GT router which is sitting idle in a box. I was wondering whether it was possible to set up a sort of wireless bridge between the two routers - esentially making the netgear act as a wireless adapter so that my sky box can connect to the internet.

      If so how can it be done?

      Actually looking around a bit, how do I use "Homeplugs"?

      You plug one homeplug into your electrical socket, you then run a ethernet cable from the Sky box to the Homeplug. You then plug the other homeplug in near your router and again run a ethernet cable from the Homeplug to your router.
