How to tell if a router will be compatible with starhub's fiber network or have a bridging function?

As title? Our problem is that we have the d-link router in the living room and it is too far to run an ethernet cable to a room on the other side of the apartment. Some people suggested that I get a cheap router, use that as an access point (bridging to the router in the living room) and then connect the second router via ethernet to my computer.

But I do not know how to tell if a router will be compatible with starhub's fiber network or whether it has the bridging function.

Any ideas?

Hi @user_10671c, warmest welcome to GreenR Community! We recommend using AC-type routers. You may also refer here

Consider a mesh router. Personally use Linksys MX4200. See this for review. Works well and versatile.
