Extender means it extends the existing Wifi or network. So the iPad now connects fine to the extender, but the extender needs to connect to the existing network either via Wifi or cable. You need to open from the iPad the admin page of the extender and find the connection details there to your existing network.

A wireless router is an external computer peripheral that accepts an incoming Internet connection, such as that from a cable modem, and converts it into a local wireless signal, allowing computers in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet.
Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless routers; the settings on Netgear routers can be changed by logging in to the router with a Web browser.
Determine your wireless router's IP address.
Many Netgear routers are set to 192.168.0.1 by default.
In Windows 7, you can find this IP address by clicking "Start," then typing "cmd" in the search box, without clicking "Enter."
When the search completes, right-click on the command icon and select "Run as administrator." In the window that opens, type "ipconfig" and click enter.
Your router's IP address will be shown on the "Default Gateway" line.
In earlier versions of Windows, click "Start," then "Run," then type "Command" in the box, click "OK," then type "ipconfig" and press enter.
Your router's IP will be listed as the "Default Gateway."

Open an Internet browser and type the router's IP address into the address bar.

Enter your router's username and password if prompted to log in.
By default, the user name and password may be "admin" and "password."


Change settings within the router's administrative center as necessary.
There will be several menus available where you can set up security for your router and set various communication options.


Choose to apply or save changes as necessary.
Your router's menus should have plainly visible buttons to apply and/or save changes you make to the settings.

Close the browser window when you are finished making changes.

If you use a Netgear router to broadcast a WI-FI (Wireless Fidelity) signal in your home, you can easily double the range of your network by connecting a second router to one of the LAN (Local Access Network) ports located on the back of the Netgear router. You can use a Linksys, Belkin, D-Link or even a second Netgear router to extend the range. Any router that allows you to access the router settings to turn off the router's DHCP server is usable as a range extender.

Complete a master reset on the router you want to use as an extender. Typically, routers have a reset hole located on the back or side of the router. Push a metal push pin into the hole until the lights on the router flash. Often the settings on routers have been manipulated to enhance a network connection. Resetting the router ensures you can access all of the settings and not encounter any issues when making the connection. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the router's LAN ports located on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port located Enter the router's IP address into an Internet browser Web address field. If you do not know the default IP address, reference TechSpot.com for a list of router IP addresses. Enter the default username and password for your router. If you do not know the default login information, reference Router Passwords.com for the default login information for your router brand. Access the DHCP server settings. Usually, this is located in the "Basic Setup" section of the router settings page. Turn off the DHCP server and then select "Update Settings." The location of the DHCP server can be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Access the "Wireless Setup" page and change the SSID to match the network name you use for your Netgear router. Select "Update Settings" to save the network name. This allows computers to move from the Netgear router to the router used as a range extender without requiring a second wireless profile being set up on the computer. The SSID could be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Access the "Wireless Security" page and update the router's password to match the password used on the Netgear router. If you do not secure your network, skip this step. The wireless password could be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Remove the Ethernet cable from the router and the computer. Plug one end of the cable into the WAN (Wide Area Network) port located on the back of the router you want to use as a range extender. Plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports located on the back of the Netgear router. Hope this helps
