Sky Booster - Connect to wireless PC via ethernet

Hi folks

 

Does anyone know whether, once set-up and connected to the Sky Hub, the Sky Booster can then be connected to a PC via the ethernet port and provide the internet connection to the PC (almost like a wireless bridge)?

 

I have a PC in a spare room which doesn't have Wi-Fi capability; would be great if the Sky Booster could pick-up the Hub's Wi-Fi signal and provide a connection to the PC over the ethernet port.

 

Cheers

 

P.

Whilst I appreciate your reply, perksie, you haven't actually answered my question. I was already aware the Booster had an ethernet port.

The ethernet port will work the same as the ones on the router!
