I currently use a TP-Link TD-W9980, very happy with it.

Yes, if you really want to. If you just want wireless access points, buy wireless access points. The only reason to use hubs is if you have a spare one lying around therefore nil cost involved. If you are buying equipment, buy the right thing rather than bodge something together.

Thank you - clearly written.  Worked first time for me (using hub 3 as secondary to hub 6).

Really helpful, thank you. Just one question - I've recently followed these instructions again for setting up my new Hub 6 and using my old Hub 5 as the extender, but despite being connected without any issues the orange broadband light continues to flash on the Hub 5. Have a missed something in the setup or is this just a feature of the Hub 5 which can't be turned off when used this way?

@mcoombsuk.  It's a 'feature', I'm afraid. You could try covering the light up. The alternative is to use something that does wireless access point properly (I use an old Asus router) and doesn't flash.

Yes, it is because the Hub has no DSL input.
