      Extending WiFi range

      Hello all

      I would like to know if I can use my old sky router to extend my wifi range from what I get now. I have just starting using the new sky hub but still have the old sky netgear router.

      sorry if silly question, I have no knowledge of these things.

      thanks in advance.

      Re: Extending WiFi range

      You can use your old router to extend your network, but you will have to join them using an ethernet cable or homeplugs. Full instructions here-
