Windows 7: Netgear N600 router & Netgear WN3000 range extender

Netgear N600 router & Netgear WN3000 range extender

Should be easy!....
But I cannot get my NEW Netgear N600 router to communicate with a NEW Netgear WN 3000 RP extender.

The instructions say to press the WPS button on the extender then the WPS button on the router. No WPS button exists on the router!

The instructions also I can use any wireless network manager utility to set this up. Can't find where this is in Windows 7.

The I pad has found the NETGEAR_EXT address but won't connect. And the light on the extender does no indicate teh router is communicating with it.

Thought this process would be a simple plug and play, but...frustration!

Is this picture of a Netgear N600 WNDR3400v2? Doesn't look like the one I have.

Found the WPS button! It is the big blue round logo on hth top of the router. It looks like a Netgear logo. They got so cute it is hard to find.
