Question about Computers & Internet
If your router/network is BT and you accepted to be "a hot spot", others can access your router/wifi, but only a reserved small limit of the bandwidth, and not your password protected part. They certainly can not see or access any of your data being sent or received.
If you have not agreed to being a hot spot, or it is not BT network, it is unlikely that anyone else, with or without an extender can access your router, providing the password is strong enough. Even if they access the router via ip addresses, settings should be protected by your access admin password.

-- what is the exact model number of your access point and router?
-- what is the ip address of your access point and router?
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- Is your computer directly connected to the router?
-- Do you have a wireless computer? what is the model number of the wireless adapter
if you want to configure your access point with your router you may try the ff:
Step 1: Connect the Ethernet port of the access point to one of the Ethernet ports of the router
Step 2: Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet
Step 3: Check if the corresponding LEDs on the access point are lit
Step 4: After connecting the devices together, configure the access point’s wireless settings
Step 5: Open the access point’s web-based setup page
Step 6: When the access point’s web-based setup page opens, change the SSID, Channel, and Wireless Security.
