Steam Deck not working with WiFi extender but works on router ?

Right I’m quickly running out of ideas as I’ll be honest networking isn’t my gig. I’ve recently put a WiFi extender upstairs. The main router is separated into 2.4Ghz channel and a 5Ghz.
All is well this works perfectly fine. Extender is a TP Link RE220 which creates separate extensions for both of these.

My PC, phone, PS5 and various other devices will connect to both the router or the extender absolutely fine. However, my Steam Deck will only connect to the router, not to the extender versions and this is where I’m stuck. Tried reinstalling everything and it’s still the same.

Any ideas I’m really hoping I’m just missing a setting
