eax80 as extender does not show up routerlogin.net.

Im getting a email saying there is a update for my eax80. But i only see my ax12 on routerlogin.net. Did I set up the ax8 correctly as a extender? If I cant see it how do i update it? 

As a follow up I found the eax 80. But I hit update and it says there is no update? I think I have it set up to auto update. Why did i get a email then? 

I went to mywifi.net and it says"You are not connected to your extender's WiFi network." It tells me to go to http://mywifiext and I can finally see the extender. So im really confused now. Is it or not hooked up to me ax12 as a extender? 

What is a mesh and is that better way to make all this work? How do i do the install for a mesh if its better?

I usually just use the IP address to access the extenders. 

what version of firmware are you on? 

the latest on the support site is 1.0.1.64
