Netgear Nighthawk M6 Pro

I just recently purchased a brand new Netgear Nighthawk M6 Pro, and I cannot connect anything to its hotspot other than my phone, I have tried multiple different devices from laptops to gaming consoles and nothing seems to work. The network name appears on other devices when scanning for wireless networks, and it allows me to type in a password which I created myself, but once I do it tries to connect for 5 seconds and instantly fails to connect to my Nighthawk. I’m at a loss for what to do next. I have a feeling it has to do with the networks security method or whatever and I can’t find any information on it.
