I have a D-Link G604T ADSL wireless router, which currently servers 3
indoor PCs: 1 Ethernet (XP Prof SP2), 2 wireless (1 XP Prof SP2, 1 2000 Prof
SP4). One of the 2 wireless PCs (the XP Prof SP2) only gets poor through
wall, furniture reception. The Router is at 10.0.0.1 and provides DHCP for
the clients from 10.0.0.2 up. I have purchased a D-Link DWL 2100AP access
point with the idea, in repeater mode, to extend the G604T range. I have
setup the 2100AP in repeater mode, with core AP as the MAC address of the
G604T. I have set the IP of the 2100T as a static 10.0.0.101. In other
aspects I have put in the same settings as the G604T: Channel #, WEP
encryption with same key. However, I have left the DHCP server in the 2100AP
off. I have placed the 2100AP midway between the G604T and the distant PC.
However, although the distant PC preferentially connects to the 2100AP, with
a strong signal, it fails to pick up an IP from the G604T, takes an IP in a
different sub-net, and thus fails to pick up internet or other network
aspects. It appears as if the 2100AP is not talking to the G604T. What am I
doing wrong?

did you use the site survey function to confirm your routers MAC? That will
also tell you if the repeater is seeing your router.

For anyone interested, D-Link support have told me that the 2 items (G604T
and DWL 2100AP) are not compatable with each other for this application!
There is nothing on the box to say that and PC World have both side by side
on the shelf.
