how to Daisy chain AC 750 to an AC 1900 set up as an access point

I purchased a NETGEAR AC 1900 Range Extender to extend the reach of my  Fios Quantum gateway router.  It helped a great deal but still have poor wifi in other parts of the house.  I also have an AC 750 left over and would like to use that to further extend wifi.  Can I know connect the AC 750 to the AC 1700 access point to assist.  How do I do this?

Yes, you should be able to wire the AC750 to the AC1900. Enable AP mode on the AC750. It's under advanced settings.

Thank you for the fast response, much appreciated.  One comment and question to clarify your response; The AC 1900 is already set up as an access point.  Are you indicating I can connect to the AC 750 using a Cat 6 cable from the AC1900 and use the AC 750 as a second access point?  I was thinking that I could just use WPS from AC 1750 to add the AC750 as wifi extender.

Yes, that's what I'm saying. I recommend against using the AC750 as a wireless range extender. Clients connecting through it will incur a minimum speed penalty of at least 50%. You won't incur this penalty with a wired connection.
