    This is quite a specific query so I'm not sure if you folks can help but you've been awesome in the past so I thought I'd try my luck.

    I'm in the UK and have Sky Broadband with a Sky Router (Model: SR101), I also have an old Netgear Router (Model: Netgear Wireless-G WGR614 v9). I have a big flat and the wireless won't reach to all areas of the flat so I wanted to set up my old Netgear Router as a repeater but I haven't the faintest idea where to start. To make matters more difficult I have a Mac instead of a PC, the only help I could find online gave advice for PC owners.

    Any help anyone can offer me would be most appreciated or if you need further information fell free to ask

    Pretty sure that router doesn't have a Repeater (or Range Extender) mode, but check the user manual or the various configuration pages.

    If you can run an ethernet cable to the Netgear it can be used as a wireless access point.
