Nighthawk access to EX8000

I have an RAX120 installed connected to Spectrum with 100mbps services.  This router is fairly new and appears to be relatively stable and provides good performance.  I have an EX8000 extender connected to this router via cat5 running in AP mode and have smart connect turnon.  The SSID's for the RAX120 and EX8000 are different. 

 

I can use the Nighthawk app to manage my RAX120 router but cannot access my EX8000.  I need to go to my PC to access and managed the EX8000.  I am under the impression I should be able to manage both my RAX120 and my EX8000 through the Nighthawk app.  Am I missing something?

Which products support the NETGEAR Nighthawk app? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

Which NETGEAR home router models can I manage using the NETGEAR genie app? | Answer | NETGEAR Suppor...

 

AP mode can break various features on routers, perhaps also on extenders.

 

You may need to find the IP address of the extender and use that as a way to get at its controls.

The manual, not always accurate, for the EX8000 makes no mention of access through the app.
