AC1200 is a speed, not a model. 

what actual netgear is it? 

are you using the installation assistant? 

Make sure to use either wpa2 or wpa2/wpa3 mixed mode on the G34 as the netgear isn’t wpa3 compatible.

Could you power cycle the Wi-Fi modem and extender once and start over the process again.

I suggest you to  connect the extender to Wi-Fi modem through ethernet cable.

Are you trying to connect the Netgear EX6150v2 wired or wireless ?

Please check if the extender as got physically an  “WPS” button on it . If so, then follow the below link to connect it through “WPS”

In case if there is no WPS button then try changing the security mode 

Login to GUI page  192.168.0.1 go to connection/Wi-Fi and change the security mode from WPA2/WPA3Mixed Personal(AES) Recommended to WPA2-PSK(AES)
