extending range with a slave router

I have a n750 router as my main network, i am looking for info on how to extend my network range uning a n600 router as a slave on my network.  I have 55mbits of speed but use Omam for telephone and Direct TV along with 2 PCs and 2 printers, a wall outlet terminal.  Any info would be appreciated thanks

Re: extending range with a slave router

Most Netgear routers only have the option to be re-configured as an Access Point, which would require a wired (Ethernet or Powerline) connection back to the main router. If you don’t already have a second router then Powerline products alone might suit your purposes;

I do have a power line extender, so that means i can use the n600 as a slave using the power line extender as connection to the n750? thanks Andy
