BT Home Hub 2.0 Type A - Bridging?

Hey, I have an old BT Home Hub 2.0 Type A, which I wanted to use as a bridge (either wireless or through an Ethernet connection) to my main hub. A quick Google search and look into my old hub settings tells me that it doesn't come with the option to use it as a bridge or extender.

I'm pretty new to this, but after researching, I've learnt that sometimes they cannot bridge because they don't have the necessary hardware, although sometimes it's just not an included option in the default firmware for whatever reason.

Is there any way of telling whether OpenWrt will support bridging on my old BT Home Hub 2.0 before installation?


BCM4322 wireless, just don't go there.

The sells for under 10 GBP on the used markets and would give you an actually usable 802.11ac/wave1 device instead (not trivial to flash either, but still easier). But for the stated purpose, there are plenty of other cheap options, both new and used, ranging from 802.11ac to 802.11ax with full (and much better) OpenWrt support in the 5-20 GBP range.

…and the rather advanced installation procedure would be the final nail to the coffin.
