Can I use my Archer A6 wireless router as a wifi extender?


Topic starter

Hello, my ISP just replaced my Archer A6 router with a new router optimized for fiber. I have a Ring doorbell down by our front gate but it's out of range for the wifi. My question: Can I use my old tp-link Archer A6 router as a wifi extender? And if so, how can I set it to do that?

If you can run Ethernet from your Router to the TP-Link Archer A6, then you put the Archer A6 into "Access Point Mode",  give it the same WiFi name (aka SSID), and password as your ISP provided WiFi router, and you should be in business.


I do not know if you can use the Archer A6 to wirelessly extend your WiFi network.
