What diameter circle?
If small, you’d make a template out of 1/4 masonite with the hole cut into it, and use a top bearing straight bit.
If large, you take off the baseplate of the router and replace with a plywood base with a pivot hole in it (think of a big compass with a router on the end)-with the distance from the pivot hole to the outside edge of a straight cutting bit equal to the diameter of the cirlle to be cut.
Hope this helps.
