How to get WavLink AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi Extender to work with Superhub 3?

I just bought this extender but I need help in getting it to work in WiFi Repeater Mode using a web browser: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07WPRQPTS/

Have tried using my Windows 10 desktop and my Android smartphone.    I'm having no luck and I'm wondering if it will ever work.

I have a Virgin superhub 3. The DHCP function is enabled.

I've definitely entered the router password correctly.   In the Wavlink Device Status menu, the IP address is showing as 192.168.10.1.  So the repeater has successfully obtained an IP address.  

However it also says "Internet: Disconnected", and no data is sent or received.

It doesn't matter whether I put the Wavlink next to the PC or next to the Superhub - it never works.

Is there anything else I can try - or is this one to return to Amazon?

Thanks!

Send it back and get a router or mesh with the hub in modem mode.

Thanks for the advice!

Theoretically speaking, should this product be compatible with the Superhub and there's just some setting I need to tweak for it to work? Or do you think it's not compatible?

Or even if it is possible to fix it, it's just not a good use of money compared to the benefit a router would bring?

What router would I be better off getting instead?

Theoretically it should work but the user failed to get it to work because its not easy to setup or its just cheap like the hub.

Get a mesh for better wireless over a big area

or a simple router
