Additional BB router (sky) - can I use it?

My boyfriend has just moved in and he has a sky broadband router.. and I figured we could put it to good use in my flat to boost the wifi in other rooms at the end of the house, which sometimes suffer from lack of wifi signal. I have a white virgin box in my spare room that is not used... does anyone know how I connect the box to it to use it?

You can connect the Sky router via powerline adapters and use it as an access point.

Google "use old router as an access point" for instructions.

It is not possible to do this or use the box in your room,

 

If you need an extra wifi point you should look at wireless repeaters or homeplugs with wifi

Of course she can use the Sky router with powerline adapters. I've got 3 of them working here.
