Setup TP Link Deco M9 Plus as Extenders with my BGW320 gateway ?

We are new ATT FIOS wifi subscribers.  We need extenders into two rooms far away from where the BGW320 gateway is in the home office so we can have uninterrupted service and stop the buffering on the TVs in the rooms that are far away from the gateway.  How do I set up our three TP Link Deco M9 Plus as extenders with my BGW320 gateway?  Thanks in advance for your help.

You need to set up the TP-Link system using IP Passthrough.  Here's a link with instructions (Use the section for DHCP-Fixed under the Motorola NVG510 and 589 since AT&T is terrible at updating their documentation).

After you have it set up it's generally suggested that you go into the BGW at http://192.168.1.254 and turn the Wifi radios off (go to Home Network, Wi-Fi, then click the Advanced Options link near the top of that page to get to those controls).
