Re: NETGEAR Extender
The key here is "mesh" extender.
A mesh extender when setup with wps or with its default settings, won't show up as a separate network.
Its whole design is to use the same ssid/password as the router so devices can roam between the 2 seamless without the user having to do anything.
If you're not wanting that, you can disable one wifi (the mesh feature).
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
