Using Old Router as Mesh Point

  • Hey everyone.

    I see a lot of people are using a Amplifi router as a mesh point on their 3rd party router, but how about the reverse?
    I would like to put my old router atop my kitchen cabinets, out of view, so that it can act as a mesh point but not have to be connected to my modem.

    If this is possible, what sort of settings would I have to have on my router and what is the process for adding it to the Amplifi system?

    For reference, I have a Netgear R8000.
