Setting up a 871w router as a wireless repeater?

Having trouble figuring out how to do this.

I have a current SSID of WORK on my main router with WPA2, AES+TKIP. I would like the 871w to simply connect to the main access point and let all my other devices use the LAN on the 871w. I would think the Dott11 radio interface would be what would need to be confiugred but I'm not sure.

I'll give more details so I get an example for this config. Password just use example, router IP is

Any idea how I can pull this off? I understand wired routers but would need a whole book to learn about wireless configs. I've avoided this for a while but I'd llike to have the internet working when I'm doing my labs in another room.

Any help is appreicated.
