Extend the wifi signal by which mode prefer?

I have 2 R7000 — Nighthawk AC1900 Smart WiFi Dual Band Gigabit Router. My main router already setup and connect to internet sucessfully. I would like to extend the wifi signal to my living room without using a Ethernet Cable. Can R7000 router extend the wifi signal without an Ethernet Cable in AP mode? Or I need to use bridge mode or repeater mode?

 

Please help, thank you very much.

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Set Up the
Router as a WiFi Access Point".

 

      To set up the router as an AP:

 

      1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Internet port of this
         router to an Ethernet port in the other router.

If you cannot run an Ethernet cable for some reason to support an AP you can use a Ethernet over powerline adapter. These work by sending the Ethernet connection to the remote end over the powerline in your home. Worked quite well for me.
