WiFi Range Extender

I have a new 3700 wireless router and I'd like to add a WiFi Range Extender. I'm liking the Netgear Universal Dual Band WiFi Range Extender (WN2500RP) I'm seeing on Amazon...unless someone here knows of something better.
It says that I'd need to Push 'N' Connect on both the range extender and on the router. I don't see anything that says 'N' Connect on the router, and can't find it in the manual.
Can someone here point my novice nose in the right direction please.
Thanks,
Redd

Looks like I may have stumped the band.
BTW, the router is a WNDR3700v4

Re: WiFi Range Extender

the doc for the router :
http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WNDR3700V4/WNDR3700v4_Genie_IG_07Dec2012.pdf

Push 'N' Connect is the Netgear' marketing garbage for the WPS.
WND3700v4 does indeed support WPS/Push 'N' Connect

The button is on the front of the router. It has a padlock on it .

Re: WiFi Range Extender

Thanks for the reply. I ended up ordering the Netgear Universal Dual Band WiFi Range Extender (WN2500RP) via Amazon. Came today and got it figured out. Did have a little trouble getting into the Extenders Genie, but finally got into it as well. Works well, exactly what I needed to boost my wireless signal to my Roku out in the garage so I can watch Netflix and have a Cigar...Priceless. >;^}
