EX7000 ... probably a simple question here

This will probably be a very easy question for someone to answer. I bought an EX7000 AC1900 originally to use as a range extender but ended up not needing it for my original plan. Can it be used as a WiFi router? I would love to be able to replace my antiquated WDNR3400.

Model: EX7000|AC1900 Nighthawk WiFi Range Extender

Not as a router but you can hardwire it into the wndr3400 and run the ex7000 in access point mode. 

Then you could either use the wndr3400 as a backup wireless, as a way or reducing the load on the network, or even just disable its wireless.

And I would do that just by connecting an ethernet cable from the 3400 to the 7000 and then using the "extended signal" produced by the 7000 to connect to, right?
