Using a second router as a repeater

Hi All


I had this working before where I have my plusnet router downstairs plugged into master socket. I then had a powerline adapter in one of the LAN ports which is received by a TP Link router in its WAN port. I then was able to config the TP link by following a guide online on how to do it -



However I recently signed up to Fibre and got a new router which also has a WAN port.


1. Should the powerline adapter go into the WAN port of the plusnet router also? Or keep it in the yellow LAN port?

2. Is there a better way to set this up than what I have described above?

The Poweline device should be plugged into one of the LAN ports on the Hub One. If the TP link works as a WAP for you then keep it as it is.
