I have the "new" black Sky router (SR102), but how can I use the old Sky white router (SR101) as an extender?

Sky have send me a new black fibre router, but i'd like to use the old router to boost/extend the network signal strength upstairs. I understand I need to connect the two together using wireless homeplugs, but does anyone know what settings I need to configure?

Do the white & black routers allow this functionality? or has it been removed in the firmware?

Appreciate any assistance.

I followed this guide and have the exact setup that you want.
one hub downstairs with homeplug connected and other hub upstairs using other homeplug and acting as wifi access point.
