To connect the Netgear range extender, all you need is to access the settings and put in the U-verse WiFi information located on the sticker on the gateway.
I found these instructions on their site:
To connect the NETGEAR WiFi Extender manually:
If you have a NETGEAR WiFi Extender with an Ethernet port (EX6100, for example):
If you have a NETGEAR WiFi Extender without an Ethernet port (WN1000RP, for example):
Hope this helps.

So I went through the instructions and connected my two Wi-Fi networks and passwords but now I have for possible wifi networks that I can connect to? When I am in a weak or area in my house do I now connect to one of the the new EXT wifi connection now showing or stay connected with my original wifi network?
