Ok guys, here goes.

I have the black BT homehub upstairs and i'd like to boost the signal downstairs by ideally using my white original BT homehub as a wireless repeater. I'm certain it'ss possible as there is a lot about this on google forum with loads of techie speak ....

1 - is it possible
2 - please tell me in English how to do it ...

Thank you everyone in advance :0)

I don't have the technical expertise to help, but just to say I am surprised the black hub is so weak that it would benefit from a repeater downstairs. Does the signal not make it through the floor ?
I am Not a Techie. However, I ask a similar question to that of O_G. Is the signal weak upstairs and is even less downstairs.

Personally, I can't see what you are going to achieve; or even the reason for your wish to boost it downstairs, if you are satisfied with what you are receiving upstairs.

Hey guys - apologies for the delay.
Well this is really more to do with my Android on Wifi and occasional laptop use downstairs where the wifi signal is at best - poor. The more obvious things can be avoided, like when the microwave is turned on etc, but i'd like to put my other HH downstairs to boost the signal. I recently changed the WIFI channel which made no difference, infact i manually went throu all of the channels. Rather annoyingly my andoid picks up BTFON from my neighbour --- AHH these things are all over the place. So back to the original - any ideas .... ??
