Bright box repeater

Hi, 

 

Any ideas as how I can use old type bright box as a secondary wifi extender wireless, using bright box 2 as a primary router. 

 

A step by step guide would be great. Currently I do not have a laptop or Pc so will only able to connect to routers via iPhone 📱.

 

Thanks in advance.

@DDC1  Have a read of THIS as it will help explain how too if it’s possible with the old router and I assume you know how to login to the admin side of the router?
