Can't connect new wifi extender

I'm able to link the extender via WPS, and my devices can se the ..._2GEXT and ..._5GEXT networks.  When prompted for the password I submit my wifi password and it won't allow me to log in (I've tried my phone, laptop, and television).  Any advice?

Model: EX6100|AC750 WiFi Range Extender

Hi @TomG123,

                        I'm sure that the password you are attempting is incorrect. Please check the password on your main network and try that.

Note: Password is case sensitive and your first character may go upper case when you type it from some smart phones/tablets.

Now it says the network requires a WPA2 password?  What would the next step be?

Hi @TomG123,

                         Please input the wireless password of your main network and check if it works.
