Using a Smart Hub 6 as a wi-fi extender

Go to solution

Hi, I have a spare Smart Hub 6 and would like to know if it can be set up to use as  a wi-fi extender and if so is it a simple process to carry out. I don't consider myself technically minded but on the other hand I'm not stupid! I'm just concerned that I might mess things up and end up with no internet at all. Thank you

It can be used as a wireless access point but it can't be used as a WiFi extender. To use as a WiFi access point, give it an IP address outside of the DHCP range of the main hub, disable DHCP and connect the 2 devices LAN port to LAN port by Ethernet cable.
