I have an AT&T 7550 dsl modem/router.  Inside I believe it is a Netgear gateway product.  I need to extend my wifi farther on to other side of home.  I installed Airport Express with Airport Utility on my MAC and I can not get it show green light.   I tried using ethernet cable directly to my Mac (on wifi).  It still show amber and on Utility is say "Air station can not extend network" message when I click on the icon.      


I am thinking it is not compatible with the Netgear router????  Should I get a Netgear Univeral WIFI Range extender?
