New Around Here
I have an ASUS DSL-N55U D1 router and recently upgraded to fibre so now have a new unit from ISP.
is it possible to get the ASUS to connect to the new router wirelessly and the repeat the signal via wired LAN?
I’ve read up but the closest I’ve got is using WDS but very confused as to programming that....
Basically primary router has Fibre, I need to get secondary router (ASUS) to extend/repeat/bridge signal downstairs. Primary to secondary wirelessly.
Secondary downstairs cabled.

Not unless you see the option under Administration - Operation Mode for Media Bridge or Repeater Mode.
