obtained a new router, how to connect my old extender to new router?

Hello.

 

I had to replace my AT&T router.  Before I realized I could change the network name and password on the new router to the old network name and password, I had already started messing with the extender. Now the 2.5 ghz light is on and so is the wps light.  

 

However, I do not know the name of the extender now and I don't know how to find out what it is so that I can access it and change the network name and password to ensure it matches the router.  Also, I do not see a default Netgear_ext name on my list of available wireless networks.

 

Thanks for reading.

Hello Kelleyr

 

I would reset the extender by holding the reset button for 10 seconds on the extender this will factory reset the extender then you should be able to go through the setup again.
