Repeating ac to older 5n isn't a great idea. You could just buy this and it offers crossband/dualband with a gigabit port too.Plus takes adavantage of beaforming, 20/40/80mhz channels that your c8 supports. Only runs around 3.5 watts vs 9/12watts idle/load on the 66u and costs around 33 bucks freeshipping.

follow the simple wizard setup it will navigate u thru connecting both ac/2.4ghz.Leave it at auto setting is good enough for most. Check the spot survey for optimal positioning or antenna adjustment
