Wireless DVR SSID name

I have a wireless DVR which automatically connects to my UVerse wireless router.  I installed an extender for better coverage which has another SSID name.  How can I change the SSID the wirless DVR connects to?

The wireless receiver is only designed to connect to the Uverse WAP.
If connection issues may need to move the WAP, longer ethernet cable.

Many believe they have whole home dvr that every box is a DVR, when reality only one DVR rest receivers either wireless or hardwired.

I took OP post to be wireless receiver needing connection to WAP, OP was trying to install another AP behind RG, and that does not work needs connection to Uverse provided WAP hardwired to RG.

Now I did hear of testing a wireless DVR, but if lsb only or test market non aware, so slim possibility OP may have wireless DVR, but would still need connection to Uverse WAP not a purchased unit.
