BT Home Hub 3.0 as DD-WRT WiFi Repater for Virgin Router

I've got Virgin broadband and have a spare BT Home Hub 3.0 Type A device lying around. I'd like to use it as a signal repeater ala DD-WRT. I can't find it in the DD-WRT device database and thus don't know A) if it will work and B) what firmware to use and what instructions to follow.

Any thoughts?

You can't use DD WRT on the homehub, it isn't available for it. But you can use the homehub as a repeater although it will have to be wired and it will have a different SSID. I used the following instructions to successfully set up a homehub 3 as a downstairs wireless repeater connected by homeplug to another homehub 3 upstairs in my local pub. Reason was a very thick concrete ceiling that blocked a lot of the signal from upstairs!
