Netgear R7000 as repeater in a secure environment

Hello

I try to setup a R7000 as a repeater for a r8500. 

Every time i try to do this, i must set the wlan security to none. From my point of view this is not ok. I would like to repeat a wlan with wpa2 security! Is this possible with my two netgear nighthawks and if yes, howto.

I really apreciate your support

 

Kind regards

Hans-Peter

Install Tomato or Xwrt-Vortex and you'll get a proper repeater mode.  Caveat emptor.
