aruba 303H can't figure how to add to existing velop mesh wifi setup

    Hi, I have a Linksys 1920 setup in bridge mode so I can use it for whole house VPN. 
    It is connected to a linksys velops that handle my wifi. Works OK but I have issues in some rooms and 
    can't get a signal to my detached garage or outdoor cameras that is stable.
    I purchased 2 aruba 303H APs in the hopes that it would be easy to connect as wifi extenders to push my velop signal
    through a window to the outside world so to speak and if I leave one in the house and one in the garage i'd want it to 
    make the house signal a bit stronger.
    I cannot get it to connect as easy as they say. It keeps wanting to leave the aruba as a separate network SSID. 

    I can use  my other SSID but still see the aruba as SETMEUP when I do a network search and when I think I have it connected it says it
    has no internet connection.
    I can see that when I log into it it has a IP address from my router.
    Is there an easy video somewhere I can follow for this? I'm not that network savvy with all these terms and don't really understand 
    DHCP and the like.
    I'd even be happy if I could just use the 2 aruba's without the velops if they would work as i need them to.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply ariyap but I don't see any attachment or tech note link that I can follow.
    Am I missing something?
