Using WGR614 v7 router as repeater with DGN2000

Hi,
i am a novice in networking topics.
I have a DGN2000 router which is being used as acces point. I alos have WGR614V7 router which i never used.

1. Is it possible to use wgr614 V7 router with DGN2000 as repeater?
2. I read in some of the forums that only WGR614 version 8 onwards support repeating function. Is this correct?
If that is correct, can i update the firmware on my wgr614 v7 to make it V8?

Thanks in advance?

Re: Using WGR614 v7 router as repeater with DGN2000

Hi June,
Thanks for ur reply.
So i assume that DGN2000 supports WDS which is required to use a repeater with. Am i right?
I would like to buy an wireless router to use as a repeater.
Can you please suggest some router which is going to be used as just repeater to work with DGN2000?

Thanks,
