How to add the AC1200 WiFi Range Extender to the AC2200 Tri-Band WiFi Range Extender?

Source:  Verizon WiFi device

First extender:  Netgear Nighthawl X 4S AC2200 Tri-Band WiFi Extender (Model EX7500)

Question:  How can I add my old AC1200 (model EX6150) for use inside my bedroom?

so you're currently going:

Verizon wifi device (model?)---->EX7500

and you want to conenct another extender to the EX7500

What error/problem are you running into?

You can daisy chain extenders. I wouldn't recommend doing it but it can be done. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Yes, that's exactly what I am looking to do.  The Verizon router is all the way in the living room.  The EX-7500 is half way in the middle of the apartment.  I need to put the EX-6150 inside my bedroom, which is at the end of a long hallway.

 

How do I configure it?  Thanks in advance for your help!

If your computer is in the same room as the (EX6+++ extender, you'd be better off connecting directly to the EX7500. 

 

How do I configure it?  Using the same guide from the installation support site.

My laptop is currently connecting to the EX7500 device outside the bedroom but the connection drops from time to time.  That's why I want to have another extender inside the room.  Let me take a look at the installation guide and figure it out.  Thanks!
