Cannot connect to router

Hi, I have just bought a wireless extender WN3500RP. I tried to configure it with the manual procedure. It finds my home network and all the configuration goes smoothly up to the last point when I reconnect to the _EXT network. THe problem is that WN3500 RP doesn't connect to my router.

Having said that, I specify that I don't have any ACL enabled on the router and to configure it I have placed it in the same room where the router is (signal is 87%) and the configuration laptop is.

I have downloaded the latest firmware available, uploaded but still can't connect to the router.... any suggestion?
