NWA50AX - Extend existing Wifi (SSID) without creating new SSID

Options
Hi There
I've bought the AP NWA50AX to extend the wifi range without without sacrificing bandwidth as with a classic repeater.

So I've two WLAN-SSID (Home/Guest) configured on my internet-router. With which option within AP management --> MBSSID Settings is it possible two simply extend the existing wifi singal with the same SSID as they exist already from my internet router. My current setting in MBSSID Settings as a repeater doesn't work out, I see a total of four SSID from my network (2x internet-router SSID, 2x AP NWA50AX SSID). 

Best regards
Mike

    In the repeater mode of Zyxel AP, it could only have a wireless connection with another Zyxel AP.  

    However, you could make your internet-router has a same SSID and Security Settings with Zyxel APs to achieve the “roaming” function.
