As our house is quite long one end of it cant pick up the wireless and we do not want to move the home hub.Is there anyway that you can use a router like a linksy to reroute (relay) the wireless from the home hub so it can be picked up in the rest of the house? A simple as possible please
It's specifically about using 2 BT Homehubs, but the principles should hold good for whatever your hardware.

To get the reapter to work with Home Hub 2 you must hard wire the other router to the hub. You can use a Cat5e/Cat6 network cable or use home plugs.
I have this setup and use two Home Hub 2's and it works a treat.

I will try and help and explain what homeplugs are and how you can extend your wireless signals etc
Ok, Homeplugs: Basically large plug adapters which allows you to share your internet connection via your electricity supply. You would plug one of the two plugs next to your BT home Hub and plug a cable from the plug to the BT Home Hub via a cable called an ethernet cable. If you look at the back of the home hub you will see yellow sockets, they are ethernet sockets.
The other (second) plug will be somewhere else in your home, e.g. top floor of house which will have a socket to plug an ethernet cable into allowing you to connect that to a computer or PS3 which will have an ethernet socket.
OR, if you want to extend your wireless, you can buy a basic cable wireless router and plug that in with the second homeplug, however, where BT has a wireless signal, you will have another wireless signal which will need to be entered on the remote devices (e.g. top of house.
This worked very well for my friends who lived in a town house and had multiple devices.
hope this helps!
