Roku Express + will not connect to wireless network when using AC1900 nigthhawk extender
I have installed a wifi extender from netgear. An AC1900 I have completed the setup and the TV and Computers and Phones all will connect to the extender but the Rokus I have will not. It finds the wifi network and allows me to enter the password but during the wireless connection phase it fails. I have spoken to NetGear they claim it is a Roku problem. Please help. I am wiling to return these extender and purchase different ones if I know they new extenders will work with my Roku Express + devices.

I use a Netgear extender and my Rokus can connect to it without problems. I have the extender configured to use a different web name (SSID) rather than duplicating that of the main router ("-ext" added to SSID), if that makes any difference.
