What's the hardware version of the WR820N?

 

Can you find Range Extender mode on the web interface? If yes, then you can try to change it to the range extender mode, and it will connect to the main wireless via Wi-Fi, which performs just as the WDS function.

The firmware seems quite old. Please download and install the latest firmware for the router from the official website below:

BTW, is the country code an EU version? You can verify this by checking the router bottom sticker.
