Model: Archer C20  
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: 0.9.1 4.17 v0001.0 Build 201214

Hello everyone.

I'm planning to buy a Archer C6 V3.2 which I'm gonna use as my main router. So I want to bridge my existing Archer C20 V5 with the new one. How do I do that ? I can downgrade too if it's needed.

In C20 GUI you need to switch the operation mode to range extender:

 

 

The device will reboot.

After finishing the rebooting process login via wired or wireless in C20 (192.168.0.1) and set:

 

 

Set the IP address to be in the C6 router subnet (192.168.0.254 for example if the C6 IP address is 192.168.0.1).

If the router reboots then login again with the IP address you've set in previous step.

Set you extended wireless network (choose the C6 network you want to extend):

 

 

If necessary change the DHCP settings:

 

 

Reboot C20 again so the changes could take effect and test if everything's as desired.

Here's the official guide for configuring the AC20 in range extender mode.
