      Using old Sky ADSL router as an access point/repeater

      Hi
      Not sure if this has been covered before, if so apologies.
      I am looking to use the old ADSL sagem router that was replaced when fibre was installed, as a repeater. The idea is it will sit upstairs next to main pc where there is a Brother 2070n printer which has an ethernet port and I have a buffalo link station nas box which I am wanting to use.
      Is this possible?
      Thanks
      Chris.

      Provided you connect it with an ethernet cable or homeplug, there is nothing to stop you. Follow the instructions here-

      It is not possible by wireless if that is what you hoped to do.
