The HubSpace app on my phone is not able to see the Netgear extender. On the off-chance it does, then it won’t connect to the WiFi network even if I attempt to join the 5GHz network. I also tried to connect to the hidden network but nothing happened. Why my HubSpace won’t connect to WiFi Netgear? Is there any problem with the app or the extender itself? Please help!
