Using EE router as a wifi extender

Hello

 

I have a RBR 850 with 3 RBS850's within the confines of my home.

 

I also have a garden shed 30m from the house to which I have ran an ethernet cable.

 

To get wifi in the shed, I have connected an old EE router which is doing a good job of providing wifi, but not with the same name

 

How to I change the name of the wifi in this router to the same as the home? I have tried the default IP address 192.168.1.1 but this does not connect

 

Is it even possible?

 

I am loathed to purchase a 4th satellite at this stage

 

Any help woule be appreciated

 

Many thanks

You'd have to check with EE on their device on how to set it up/manage it.
