    Hi guys,

    I have a quick question. I've got 2 VM Super hub 2's, what I want to do is connect them both wirelessly together. So that SH1 is connected up as a modem and a router and SH2 is just a router that wirelessly connects to the other router to give internet access. That will allow me to connect a media streamer into SH2 (through one of the Gigabit ports) and have it access the network (and internet) through the 5ghz band.

    Does that make sense? Is that even possible?

    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks

    Alex

    No it is not possible. There is no facility for wireless bridge mode.

    Run an ethernet cable direct to your streamer. It's the best, easiest (just have to hide a cable away) and most reliable solution. Homeplugs are your other option but I'm not a fan as it introduces two many failure points for my liking.

    The firmware definately doesn't cover that option.
