I would like to repeat a signal from my Sky wireless router downstairs, on a Netgear DGN2000 wireless router/modem. I have set it to repeater mode, with the MAC address from the Sky box downstairs, but it doesn't seem to be making any difference.
I verified that the Netgear is in range of the Sky router by using a phone to check the Sky router's signal.
I can go and play around with the settings on the Sky router, but this question is more out of curiosity (and in the interests of saving time - no point playing around with the Sky box if that's not the problem). Personally I would have imagined that for the Netgear router to pick up and repeat the signal, I needn't change anything on the main AP, the Sky box.
