Wi-Fi coverage issue solved using second router as a repeater?

Hi Guys,

I have a zyxel p-660hw-t1 v3 router. The problem is it doesn't give full wireless coverage in my home. I do have a second zyxel p-660hw-t1 v3, and I was hoping this could be used a wireless repeater enabling full coverage. Can you please advise the steps and settings to achieve this thanks

You can certainly use your second router as a bridge, this gives you a rough idea as to what's involved and this is your manual.

That should work but if not I would recommend powerline adapters. Last week a friend of mine who lives in a 17th century stone walled cottage reported continuing problems with a wireless signal from a new router. A couple of TP-Link powerline adapters (£50 starter kit from Maplins) and 1 minute later we had a 500 MBs link direct to the router. Painless.
