How To Setup Netgear Router N600

I have a Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router that I want to use as a wireless "hotspot" (or I believe Netgear calls it a repeater). Unfortunately my knowledge with this goes as far as using one router. So I need help figuring out how to get my Netgear Router to be in listening mode to bounce the signal from the Xfinity router to the upstairs. Please help!

Setup Netgear Router N600:

Step - 1 Once you power up the router you merely type and you're redirected to the web interface on the router. You don't have to type in an IP address such as though that's the default address for the router.

Step - 2 If you prefer to connect wirelessly by default the WNDR3800 is preconfigured with a unique SSID (Network Name) and a unique Network Key.

This information appears both on a label on the bottom of the router as well as on the protective plastic film on the top of the Netgear n600 router. Note that the same WPA passphrase is used for both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.

Step - 3 You can either manually configure your wireless connection using this supplied information or you can press the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button on the front of the Netgear n600  router and use the WPS feature of your wireless client.
