Trying to set up a Netgear Wifi Extender

Trying to connect range extender to a netgear modem router (model D2200D) - wifi extender powers on, searches for the modem router and I push the WPS button on the modem router. WPS LED blinks faster on the wifi extender and then nothing - no connection.

Ideas?

Hi Dexter, 

I did set it up manually and funny enough when I check my connection on my computer it does say that I am gettting signals from the range extender and that is how I am connected to the internet. The weird thing is that the client link LED is still red - the others are green (router link LED, the power LED, and the WPS LED.
