short answer to that is yes since it has 4 ethernet outputs.

Re: R8000

I usually advise anyone using wifi extenders, that if they're needing more than 1 to switch to a mesh system like orbi or MK nighthawk. 

but it can be done if you do it properly. 

a couple questions. 

1. what extenders are you looking at? 

2. are you planning on setting them up in a star or daisy chain configuration?

3. are you planning on disabling smart connect on the router so you can connect each extender to a different 5ghz from the router?
