Windows 7: How can I set up a secondary Sky Router SR101 to boost signals?

How can I set up a secondary Sky Router SR101 to boost signals?

I've recently moved houses and got a new router from sky. My signals don't go too far and I would like to use my old one as a extension, does anyone know how to set it up so that where ever my signals don't go my second router can boost them so they do?

Thank you!

It may not be possible. Most combination modem/routers don't have the extended features of a consumer router. You'd be better off buying a new router and either turning off your current modem's gateway functions, or connecting it as an access point rather than a router.

Personally, I'd put the modem in bridge mode and use my own router. That's mainly because over here in North America, most combination modems are horridly under-featured.
