Hello everyone,

Been reading a lot, too much information everywhere!
Quickly:
Just switch to ATT internet, modem/router included, all good - one side of the house has excellent signal plus Nova Mesh wifi extenders - but the other not so much

i have this router R6300v2, purchased when had comcast, watching youtube on how to turn old routers to repeaters, it looks easy - I can follow instructions

I just want this router to work as an extender or repetear, so I can use it on the other side of the home - connecting an old tv Lan, old laptop lan and tablet wifi
(no, I cannot run a cable)

is it worth it? will it cause problems? is the router good for receiving/sending speed like that? (300mbps with att)

thanks for any input

I'd suggest using Client Mode (not Bridged, unless you need the upstream side to access it) on the 2.4 GHz radio, then use 5 GHz as normal AP mode. Unless WDS works, which is unlikely.
