Netgear Nighthawk AC2600 Smart WiFi Router as Repeater

Is it possible to setup my R7450 as a wifi repeater? I've logged into the router and looked under Advanced Settings but I do not see an option for Wireless Repeater. 

 

I am using a Nighthawk AC1900 Wifi Cable Modem Router as my bass. As I also have the AC2600, I would like to try to use it to extend my wifi if possible.

Not supported by stock firmware. You also don't want to use repeaters as they cut bandwidth in half due to constant need to be in contact with the main router

You can use it as a wireless access point (AP), wired back to your router.

 

That would also work on the end of a Powerline network.

Just another user.
