      Try following the instructions here.-
      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/attac...nk-dir-613.pdf
      It is based on the DIR635, but should be similar.

      If you don't have success, try the method here -

      Note that the first uses the WAN or Internet port and the second one of the 4 ethernet ports.

      Thank you for the assistance. Both pdf documents are really helpful!

      I have got it working the second way already. Would you suggest that one way is better than the other at all, or if one works, just stick with it?

      Thanks again

      Irving

      The 2nd method will mean that anything connected to either router can talk to anything else.

      This is probably the best option in your case as you wish to extend the WiFi cover by using both routers.

      The first method would mean that the Sky router effectively becomes just a modem, and your Cable router would become the boss of your home network. This is good where someone has a cable router that is far better than the Sky router.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      If you are happy with it, I would leave it the way it is, remember the old axiom, don't fix something that ain't broke.
