4GEE WiFi box - connect to BT wireless router?

Hello I received a 4GEE WiFi box today and need to find a way to connect my smart tv to it by LAN. It doesn't have a LAN port but wondered if there is a way to use my old BT router an an access point and have that "talk" wirelessly to the 4GEE WiFi box, pick up the WiFi internet signal and feed it to the smart tv through the ethernet cable between the tv and the bt router? 

 

Or is there any other way to use ethernet connections with the WiFi box?

Not easily if at all as the MBB router has no Ethernet ports.

 

All I can think of is try making the BT router's 2.4 GHz WiFi SSID and pwd the same as the MBB's ones, or v.v.

Hi @gavinesslemont,

 

Welcome back to the EE Community.

 

If @XRaySpeX's suggestion doesn't work, you can purchase WiFi adapters for most smart TV's that don't have WiFi built in.

 

Hope this helps.
