Model: Archer CR500  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I recently had to switch ISP providers, unfortunately the new one is a DSL provider so I couldn't use my Archer CR500 with them.

But I was wondering if there's a way I can use it as a range extender or a client, connecting it to my DSL modem wirelessly and then connect other devices to the Ethernet ports of the Archer CR500... is that possible? The only operation modes I see are Router and Bridge.

Regretebly no.  The CR500 can only be a cable modem or a cable modem/router.  There is no AP mode.
