Model: Archer C6  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.0.14

Hi I have a network with 4 Decos M4 mesh routers, all connected by cable to the main one. I want to extend the wifi range to a room that is also connectet with ethernet to the main Deco.

 

I have an Archer C6 v3.20 Firmware 1.0.14 that I want to use as an wifi extender as well as a hub for other devices to connect directly via ethernet.

 

Whats the best way to connect all this?

That would be connecting the Archer C6 in AP mode - Case 1.

Connect the ethernet cable to the C6 WAN (Internet) port.
