Weird issue with flats wifi extender and my win 7 desktop

So moved into a new flat today and hooked everything up, the wifi extender shows up correctly and works on my android phone but my pc picks the extender up as the factory default name for the connection_ext.

Is there a likely cause?

A WiFi extender has to log on the main router to repeat the signal.
Is the Router and the extender the same you had before moving to the new flat?

Is it working properly on the PC?
