Can i use a home hub 6 as repeater with smart hub 2 (Fibre to home)?

Hi all,

Can i use an old home hub 6 as a repeater with smart hub 2?

If yes, what are the set up steps?

 

Many thanks

You can't use it as a wifi repeater but you can use it as a wireless access point if you connect it to the smart hub via Ethernet.

There are countless posts on the forum on how to do that, but to save you looking, you just give the hub6 an IP address outside of the DHCP range of the hub, turn off DHCP and connect the 2 hubs together LAN port to LAN port.

Thanks for fast answer 

I can do that as I have Ethernet running c. 20 meters to another  external building so I will connect to smart hub 2 using home hub 6
