How do I set up my EX 5000 Extender when the enclosed instructions are useless??

Just got an EX5000 Extender to connect to my Netgear Router and the instructions on how to connect it are effing useless. The wesite that Im instructed to go to in order to register and  set up a password is impossible to reach (if it even exists). So I buy something and it is , in effect,  useless.  No rep[y yet from tech support.  Im giving it another few days and then sending it back.  If anyone can help I would much aopreciate it.   Cheers.

This youtube goes over using the installation assistant.

here's where you can get the guide and manuals.

where is it failing in the process? 

What router are you connecting it to? 

 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Thanks Plemans!    That worked..Extender is connected with all lights on. Wish I could say it has made a big difference but my wi fi is still poor. I may be in a 'bad' area that Im just going to have to live with
