Can't connect to this network


Can't connect to this network

I have done anything humanly possible and everything I can think of...

I'm helping my mother out by boosting the internet into the bedroom in her house. I have connected the extender to the router using wps and it is perfect, extender finds router and connects to it and they are friends lol then moved the extender closer to my mothers bedroom and still everything is perfect, green lights everywhere. 

I find the extender in the connection list and I try to connect to it but I just get "Can't connect to this network" 

What am I doing wrong?

Model: WN3000RPv3|N300 WiFi Range Extender

Try to log into the extender with a device that can connect to it via www.mywifext.net use admin/password to login and then go in and change the SSID of the network then see if the device can connect.
