An old router can be used as a repeater, taking the signal from the new base station to strengthen connectivity.

PETALING JAYA: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) said it has investigated the vulnerabilities of the D-Link DIR 850L router, which it provides with some UniFi broadband plans, and found that one of the security systems that is flawed is turned off by default. 

It said in a statement that the flawed remote management which could allow attackers to take control of the router remotely is turned off by default with the units it supplies. It advises users that have turned on this feature to disable it immediately.
