Using a PN router as wifi bridge?


[link to this post]
 
I have a spare PN router (585v8) lying idle. We now have internet enabled TVs etc and with the clocks going back I need to bring my entertainments up to date.

Can this router be configured as a bridge to connect a TV to my 582n router? I realise that homeplugs would be the easiest way to connect the two but I have plenty of time and less money!

Done a Google and search in the PN website but no real answers.

I now realise that the internet is for rather more than a bit of browsing and a few emails!

Any suggestions? TVMIA

I have done exactly that with a TG585 although I'm using a spare WNR1000 for that purpose at the moment. It's a bit fiddly disabling the DHCP, from memory you have to Telnet in and use the right command, then remember to save the settings. I got the full manual through a Google search.
