Using Livebox as a second router

Hi all,

I currently have a BT Homehub as my broadband router and use wifi with no problems etc.
However, down the end of the garden in my garage i can't get a signal.
So, i was thinking of using a wired connection from the BT Homehub down to the garage and then into a wireless router - effectively extending the range of the wifi.

1) Can this be done using a Orange Livebox as the second router? (i have a spare one lying around)

2) Assuming it can be done - how would i setup the Livebox?

3) Can somebody confirm that i would be able to do this using Homeplugs as the wired connection?

Thanks.

you,could use the orange livebox as an access point for the main router but i am unable confirm is htis would be possible because it isnt your standard looking router is?
