From the help page you linked to have you tryied the instructions under "Advanced Features"

 

 

You can easily configure your Wi-Fi Extender through an internet browser. Change your Wi-Fi name and password, upgrade firmware, manage IP addressing and more.

 

Go to http://192.168.1.240

Try changing its Wi-Fi name. Pick a channel that is different from your router. Then re-boot the extender.

They do.

 

Not bad hardware from what I have been told by people with them.

 

 

Thanks, good to know.

Can we keep this on topic please so I can fix this issue.

 

Umm, establishing what equipment you are using is pretty relevant to troubleshooting.

The laptop is dual band I hope? Even 3 years ago there were still some single band cards going into some laptops.

that is the correct answer.  :-)
We still dont have the most basic of info : exactly what wifi hardware and how it was configured .

 

 

 

"So changing the WIFI channel on my main router has fixed the issue with my wifi network not showing on my laptop and I can not connect. 
I still can't see my AP though, assume it's also using an unrecognised channel? "

 

Im guessing its just repeater/extender nastyness . Good luck with that .
Try changing the SSID on one of the wifi units .
Dont be surprised if repeater/extender mode simply doesnt work .
