Yes, you can connect an ethernet cable between this and the sky box and use it to connect to a wireless network.
I have an outbuilding with ethernet/cat5 cable running to it from main router, can I plug ethernet into this so I will have wifi in that area? thanks 20 Oct 2014
Yes, that's exactly what it's for.
Does this unit use the electrical circuit to boost the signal? I have 2 circuits in my home and as a result wifi extenders upstairs do not work 6 Mar 2014
Not as far as I can see. Mine is situated some 25 metres away from the router in a different building with its own electricity supply within our works premises and it works perfectly. I hope this answers your question.
When in client mode and acting as a wireless bridge to the two Ethernet ports, does it still also act as a wireless repeater/booster at the same time? 22 Nov 2014
Yes it is. I use mine as a wifi booster as well as supplying Ethernet connections to my sky box and DVD
Can I use this on holiday where I would y have access to the router but would have the password for wifi? 27 Aug 2014
Mostly every hotel provides a LAN socket without password request. Just connect the TeckNet with it and you will have a wifi network. Is it that what you need to know?
I assume you set the SSID to the same as your wirless network when it's acting as a repeater to keep everything seemless? 22 Nov 2014
Yes, and it will choose the same channel by default when setting it up initially. Do check the IP range first, that it falls within the main router/modem IP range. I didn't and I had to reset the whole thing in order to get into it again once it had rebooted into repeater mode.
I have it plugged to the wall. I don't know if the "extension lead" option works....sorry
Could I connect this to my router via an ethernet as a wifi extender and then use the second ethernet port for a wired connection to my pc? 26 Nov 2014
I've hard wired it on my smart TV and my tivo box and it works fine. I'm not sure about what your suggesting good luck.
Not enough detail here, is this your user name and password for the wireless setup or the user name and password for the TeckNet device?? If it is for the device you can use the CD that comes with it to put the settings in for your Wireless, then all you have to do is enter your Wireless details in.
