Hey guys, I'm stupot65


I need to set a router up as a repeater as my wifi doesn't reach very far. My main router is a Sky Hub SR102 (black model) and the router I wish to use as a repeater is a Sky Hub SR101 (white model).


I need specific instructions to set it up as a wireless repeater if possible please. I have trawled google to no avail and have a fairly reasonable knowledge of networking (not my forte I'll admit)


Thank you in advance for your time and effort

Hi stupot65 and Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


The Sky Hub SR101 DSL router is not made or contain any Repeater mode feature according to the online specifications. http://www.sky.com/shop/__PDF/BroadbandSetUpGuidelines.pdf

And I don't see Sky Hub in the routers that support DD-WRT either. I think you'll need another router..sorry.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
