I know most people will configure a dd-wrt router as a repeater to connect to a main router with OEM firmware - there's plenty of instructions on that. My situation is reversed - I'd like to connect a router with OEM firmware (Linksys EA7500) as a repeater and connect it to my main router (Netgear R6400), which is dd-wrt - there's absolutely no instructions on it.
My question - what do I need to change on my main router (dd-wrt) in order to connect to the repeater (I've tried to connect them as is, but it didn't work)?

Interesting that it has the capability, I was under the wrong impression, apparently. I don't understand what is so different, though. If you are repeating an SSID, the "instructions" should be very universal.
