PLW1000 as repeater?

Is it possible to set up the PLW1000 as a repeater?  Instead of having 2 networks with the same name?  I can't find an option for this in the settings section.  I used WPS to copy the settings from my wireless router, hoping that would make it function as a repeater.  Now I just have a second network option (netgear, netgear_2GEXT), which also requires me to log in with a password. I'd just like to know if it's possible to set it as a repeater so I have one network option and don't need to log into the other one separately if I'm in the opposite side of the house?  Thanks

Hi natbrux,

 

The configuration for PLW1000 is different from an extender or repeater. You may need to check the installation guide.
