I am using ISP's router as primary broadcaster directly connected to computer with an ethernet. Thus, I am trying to setting up old Linksys EA6900 as an extender by following instructions from Linksys website and IP address. All other articles for instructions online, despite of different router brands, all mentioned about the same using "wireless repeater." But there is no wireless repeater on the dropdown list to choose, what are other options I can use when Linksys doesn't have the wireless repeater ability?

thanks

Phrases also used for "wireless repeater" include "extender" and "range extender."

Does the Linksys EA6900 have that capability? And do the "instructions from Linksys website" that you are following come from the User Guide for that model?
