Devices cannot find NETGEAR_EXT to connect extender

I'm having trouble setting up my extender. Neither my laptop or iphone can find the NETGEAR_EXT network that is required to complete the setup. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 

 

App version is 2.15.1.2

Firmware Version is V1.0.1.106

Model: EX6150v2|AC1200 WiFi Range Extender

Have you tried factory resetting it? maybe it was setup prior. 

Push and hold resets for 7-15 seconds while powered on. the lights should flash/change when held long enough. 

 

You can also hardwire a pc/laptop into the extender for setup. Just make sure to disable the wifi on the pc/laptop when doing so so the computer doesn't default to the wifi connection.
