AC750 Dual Band WiFi Range Extender(EX2800) - Changing name

Hi, I installed this new extender and its name came up as my routername_Extender . Is it possible to change the extender name  and have it match the router name?

You can log into it and change it. 

Keep in mind, it isn't a mesh extender so it won't roam like a mesh extender will. 

Your devices should still roam but just not as efficiently/rapidly as a device that supports the smart roaming functions.
