E4200 and Linksys DMA-2200 Media Center Extender

I just bought an E4200 and set it up.  I have all the computers, printers, iPads and Roku boxes running with no problems.  The only thing I can't get connected is my DMA-2200 Media Center Extender.  I've tried to set it up 20 times.  The DMA-2200 recognizes the network, tells me it's connected, but when I enter my key code into Media Center, it tells me that it can't find the extender.  I've had the extender refind the network, I've rebooted my computer that houses the Media Center, I've powered off and unplugged the DMA-2200.  I can't think of anything else to try. 

 

I am open for ANY ideas that people may have.  I love my extender!!!

 

Thanks!!!

Hi, 
 
         I was just wondering if your extender is connected to the 5GHz network? I read somewhere
over the forums that the E4200 v1 has some issues with the DMA2200. Perhaps, you might want to try
to setup the device wired to the router first, connect to the 2.4GHz or set the 5GHz network mode to Wireless-A Only.

 

 

Hope this helps!

 

Cheers`
