Can I use Nighthawk wifi 6 router as an AP if my main is a 5GHZ nighthawk R7450

I have a 2 year old Nighthawk R7450. We just moved into a larger split level home. The internet installer has my router downstairs in the middle of the house. Wifi got weak in parts of the upstairs so he installed two lan connections on each ends of the upstairs. I was going to do another router in AP mode upstairs but was wondering if I could use another Nighthawk with wifi 6 upstairs as the AP since we mostly stay up there and our phones are wifi 6 compatible. Thanks for help.

Visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

That page will also have any software, firmware and drivers for your device, if they exist.

Check the section in the manual

 

Use the Router as a WiFi Access Point

Not sure where WiFi 6 comes into the picture. Its isn't in the R7450 specs.
