hi - have the new talktalk router / hub but due to big house and thick walls have weak signals in some areas. tried powerline extender but too many drop outs. Now trying a Netgear dual frequency WAP. No expert on networking so need some advice on how to configure the WAP to work with the existing LAN.
Several questions re IP setup and security settings can provide details of existing LAN - any expert help would be much appreciated thanks

With the Netgear Wi-Fi extender plugged into power near the router press the WPS button on the router then the WPS button on the Netgear, that should handle it automatically.
