Routing Mode - which should I use.

I have a r6700v2 router and a c7000-cable modem/router. I use the c7000 for the modem and turned the WiFi radio signals off. I use the 6700 for the WiFi signals. I moved to a bigger home recently where the 6700’s range is not covering the whole house. Can I turn the c7000 radio signals back on and pair the router to it like a WiFi extender? That way I can move the router towards the dead area of the home and have whole home coverage.

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

Re: Routing Mode - which should I use.

Not sure if you understand what I’m trying to accomplish. I want to turn the c7000 back into a router then use the r6700v2 as a WiFi extender. As in put it near the end of the c7000s WiFi range and have the r6700 connect wirelessly to the c7000s wireless signals. Using the v6700 as an “access point” per the manual says it needs to be “wired” to the existing router(c7000). I don’t want to run 150ft of cable from where I need the r6700 to be and where the c7000 will be. I want to be able to have the r6700 placed near the “dead zone” then have it connect wirelessly to the c7000 wireless signals that way I can have wireless devices connect to the r6700.
