    I have an ac86 as my main router. I want to connect a desktop but running Ethernet isn’t an option. I know I could buy several different things to connect wirelessly but I found my old asus n65u and wanted to know if I can use that and if so, how? If I can save myself money and use this old router I’ll be happy, but if it’s too complicated then I can just save some time and spend the money.

    I am very new and inexperienced with networking so please try to use small words and easy directions.

    According to the specs on the Asus website that router supports Media Bridge mode. So connect your PC to the N65U with an Ethernet cable, log into its web interface and change "Administration - Operation Mode" to "Media Bridge".
