Setting up multiple AC1900 Nighthawk Wifi Range Extenders

I want to setup a second AC1900 Nighthawk Wifi Range Extender.  I have one at the north side of my house and it works great.  I want to add a second one to the south side of my house. 

 

1.  Will This work?

2.  If it will, the current extender shows up as _2GEXT and _5GEXT.  What will the second extender show up as?

Model: EX7000|AC1900 WiFi Range Extender

  1. Yes.
  2. It might be the same, but you can always rename them.

Log into the extender at mywifiext.net.  You need to be connected to the extender.  Check the manual if you need help.
