Can you go into a bit more detail about what you want to do?

 

What is this hotspot? Your main Internet source?

 

You want to use the R6120 is a wifi "bridge" between different wifi devices?

 

You want to add wifi from the hotspot to the existing R6120 network?

 

I have no idea what the WRN6120 is. But the R6120 a basic Netgear router. I see no sign in the manual that it can do clever things like wireless repeater or WiFi bridge mode. (It also has very slow, 100 Mbps, ethernet capability.)

 

Manuals are always a good place to start.
