Using a a second router to boost my signal

Hi. I have just installed a Netgear modem-router to replace a Speedtouch modem and a D-Link router which are no both surplus to requirements. I was thinking: is it feasible to use the D-Link router to boost the signal from the Netgear? Suggestions please, PP

If the D-Link is able to switch to Access Point mode you can do it.

I'm not sure if it's worth doing, because I'll confess I'm not great at the "technical" side of wifi (ie. ranges etc.)

That said, it's surplus. So you might like to keep it as a known good spare or use it in AP mode, if it has one.

You can run an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports on the new router to a LAN port (not WAN) on the D-Link and put it in another part of the house on a different channel for wider coverage, if needed.

Turn off the firewall and DHCP on the D-link.
