Configure C6900 as repeater

Hi,

I have a C6900 which I was using. Now I changed my ISP and new one gives modem. I now want to use my C6900 as repeater but I do not see an option in advanced settings to do that. 

Can it be configured as a repeater/ extender? If yes, any guidance on how to do so would be appreciated.

 

BR,

SJ

   Not in the usual meaning of those terms.  It should be possible to
configure it as a wireless access point.  That requires an Ethernet (or
equivalent) connection to the main router.  See, for example:

That's written for a Netgear C6300-as-WAP, but the steps are about the
same for any other router (any make/model) which lacks a one-step WAP
option.  (Especially similar for another Netgear Cxxxx.)
