Two routers to extend distance.

I have two routers.
A GL-AXT1800 Slate and a GL-SFT1200 Opal.
I want to know if they can be connected to create extra distance.

The scenario would be computer > SLATE > OPAL > receiving device (iPad).

I have tried setting up the Slate and connected the computer and iPad successfully. Then I tried adding the Opal via network mode Extender to extend the Slate network.

It appeared to connect properly. That is to say the Opal showed up as a connected Client in the State Admin panel.
However I experienced no discernible difference in the distance from which I could connect.

Have I missed a step AND does the end user device connect to the Opal signal or the Slate network name ?
