bright box

I can't find a link either. Is there a definitive site that will give me waist of what routers will do this? I have a few.

The other idea is to use it as a wireless access point. Where it is connected to the main router via an ethernet cable. I could do that

The problem with your Bright Box

Is it's not a router but a combo box with DSL modem and router. There is no place for the WAN connection or control of that so it's a dead end. I repeat. Not a router.

If I did have a router I could use almost all of them as a Wired WAP. Google "How to use a router as a WAP."

Now if you want this to not be wired then you have to check the router's features for such.

Wired solution?

How do I check the routers features?

A wired solution would be ok with me. So perhaps someone could give m an idiots guide as to how to set that up please?

Sorry

But when I googled "How to use a router as a WAP" I found many pages with more than one explanation so you can find one you understand. If you don't understand any of those then your next move is to have someone come in and set it up.
