Need help extending range of r7500 with wndr3300

My current setup is the adsl gateway is hooked from the lan to the wan on the r7500. the r7500 is in a metal building so the range outside is fluctuating very frequently. This is the reason I want to extend it to hopefully improve it. How do I hook it up from the r7500 android wndr3300?

Set the WNDR3300 as an Access point. Connect a cable from the LAN port of the R7500 to LAN port of WNDR3300. Before it make sure to disable the DHCP server of the WNDR3300 under the LAN setup and set a static IP in range with the R7500.

Also I need steps on how to put it in access point mode. I connected my pc from Ethernet on pc to lan but sometimes I cannot access the 3300's gui.

Check the IP of your computer connected to the R7500. For example the IP address of the Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1.

-Disconnect the WNDR3300 first from R7500.
-Access WNDR3300's web UI(routerlogin.net)
-Go to LAN setup
-Under LAN TCP/IP Setup : change the IP address (ex. 192.168.1.50) in range with the R7500 IP.
-Uncheck "Use Router as DHCP Server"
-Then click apply
-Connect the cable from LAN port of the R7500 to the LAN port of WNDR3300

Now you can access the WNDR3300 page using the IP address you have set (ex. 192.168.1.50)
