Model: RE650
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

I want to use RE605X AX1800 WiFi range extender as a wireless bridge. I want to connect this extender to my existing WiFi network and connect another router to the extenders Ethernet port. ( |Existing Wifi Router| >>> wifi >>> |range extender|----(ethernet)----|another router|----(ethernet)----|computer| )

 

I couldn't find the user-manual for RE605X so don't know if this is possible. Can someone tell me if the range extender would support the above suggested setup?

@harshatech2012 Hello, 

Thank you for your detailed post.

 

Yes, you could use RE605X as a Wireless bridge to connected 2 routers in the same house. And 2nd router should work in Access Point Mode to avoid conflict with first router. 

 

Recommended Topology: 1st router ))) ((( RE650X ----2nd router ( AP Mode) ----PC 

 

Before set up the connection, please make sure first router ----2nd router are working when connected through Ethernet cable.
