      Spare router as a booster

      Hi all
      I recently got the SR102Z router but still have low signal upstairs, I was wondering if it is possible to set up my old DG834GT router up there to boost signal some how, I missed out on the free booster offer

      Thanks

      Sorry for the delay in responding. Pleasetake a look at the guide in the thread linked below. You'll need a suitable Ethernet cable to link the two routers together. It should also provide a better connection speed than the Booster would.
