I use this range extender to boost a Cisco E1200 router from the other end of the house. Lately the extender has started randomly disconnecting me and reconnecting me after about 20 - 30 seconds. Its an issue trying to play any sort of game or watch netflix on a console.

It need to be wire connected to another router, once it has an IP you can access the device with a web browser and configure wireless access pretty much with the same information as your actual wireless access point, same network ID and key.
To properly set up the WN3000RP you first have to push the WPS or Push 'N' Connect button on the router-WN2500RP(on the back of the router between the reset and the wired connection slots) and then the Push 'N' Connect button on the extender. It should negotiate and establish a connection between them.
Things That Affect Wireless Router Signals 1. Many wireless routers are using the same wireless channel. Many manufacturers choose channel 6 as the default. Change to another channel. 2. Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9. Building materials will block wireless signals such as plasterboards with metal foil, reinforced concrete walls and floors. Also objects near the wireless router such as metal filing cabinets and other electrical appliances. 10. Blinking Christmas lights can reduce Wi-Fi performance by 25% when it is close to the wireless router.
The possible cause is the router is not able to extend the signal to that range. Try using a range extender to boost your wireless signal. Signal strength depends on the router. So adding a range extender should solve this issue
