i have a weak wifi signal in parts of my home.  can anyone tell me how i can setup my netgear wndr4500v2 as a repeater/signal booster for a lynksys mesh mr8300?  hoping someone can assist in letting me know if this is possible, as well as how to configure if possible.  thanx in advance.

I am trying to do the same thing and I think in order to do this, it will be necessary to go to a Linux solution like dd-wrt or OpenWRT.  In my IOT home, there are wireless lightbulbs just at the edge of reach of my current C7000 wireless signal.
