Customer Question

Hi I was wondering if you might be able to help me
at the moment I have got a Netgear DGN2200v4 router that does my wifi and internet. I also have a BT HOME HUB 3.0 i was wondering if i could use the HOME HUB 3.0 as a wireless bridge were it locates the signal(Wifi) from my Netgear router and then anything connected to the eathernet ports on it will then have the internet
Thank you
