Just got XB6 wondering why my Netgear Wifi Extender does not show up as connected device

 Went from the Gateway 3 to the XB6 was hoping for improved wifi through house.   Have not noticed much difference am hoping the xfi pods when available might be of help.

 

Main question is when I look on my xfi app it does not show my Netgear Wifi Extender as connected.....but it is....and actually most of my devices do better on the ext.   The Xfi app also does not show devices connected to the Extender.   Is that to be expected??    It seems like with my other Gateway it would show in the app that the Extender was connected.  

 

This may be a dumb question I am just trying to understand how this entire network thing works Smiley Happy    Thanks for any help or understanding you can provide!
