If I stay on the main linksys connection, everything works fine. As soon as I switch to the wifi extender everything stops working after a few minutes.
I would like to know more details about your extender. What's the model number?
If you have a large house, I suggest a bridge and an accesspoint. Personally, I am using a WAP610n and a WET610n. I bought it long time ago and it works great. I believe you can consider buying an AC accesspoint and AC Bridge.
You may also try downloading inSSIDer for you to check what is the appropriate channel that works best for you. Goodluck.

Hi! Have you verified if your WN300RP from Netgear is 100% compatible with another brand? Based from my experience, there are some extenders that may or may not work with a different brand. This might be one of the reasons why you're having these challenges with the connection.

After the firmware downgrade I recommend a reset to defaults.
For setup I choose "I want to skip Setup and configure my router manually".
I don't recommend Cloud Connect enablement because it could change your default IP network settings to a 10.x.x.x network.
Reconfigure router and wireless.
WN3000RP requires either b/g/n wireless protocols. AC wireless is not compatible with this device.
The WN3000RP default IP Address is 192.168.1.250 which is outside the EA6900 default IP Address range which should be good.
Follow WN3000RP setup instructions below:

Hi Fleuryte, did you try changing the channel settings on the router's page? The crashes may be caused by wireless interferences. It may also be best to update the driver of the wireless network card.
Yes, please try resetting and unplugging like you said and see how it works. We will surely learn from your situation. Goodluck!

I did, I've tried a few different channels after doing a scan of the neighbor's channels. The network card is up to date.
After testing last night, it seems I disconnect at that end of the house and crash the network no matter what network I'm on. I unplugged the extender and the problem still persists. So something is happening with the router/modem I think. This is the third router we've been on within a MONTH because we keep getting wireless problems... So maybe it's the ISPs fault? Perhaps there's an incorrect setting? I also can't seem to use my ISP's dns address at all. I have to use opendns or else nothing loads and I get constant DNS errors.

Has anyone experienced a problem not being able to throttle uplink speeds on the EA6900? I spoke to tech support once for excess of 2 hours. Tried hard resetting the router, rolling back firmware, etc.
Ultimately, a new router was sent to me that was supposed to solve the issue. Tech support thought it was a hardware issue. Upon receipt of the new router, it exibited the same problems. If anyone else has seen this and knows of a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.
